Haringvliet and Volkerak locks
The reliability and availability of the Haringvliet and Volkerak locks and flood defences had to be increased, and the various installations brought in line with the state of the art. The operating and energy distribution systems and various components of the mechanical installations have therefore been replaced. Iv-Water drew up the execution plan, which focuses on optimising capacity and applying technical expertise in electrical installations for lock complexes. The project made use of the Systems Engineering approach, a tool originally developed to provide the Directorate-General of Public Works and Water Management with insight into project control. The detailed design was also prepared by Iv-Water in collaboration with Grontmij and ABB.
