Container pontoon with 3 applications in IJmuiden
For the realization of the new sea lock in IJmuiden, also called the Port of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. We have supplied a large 17 x 36 meter modular container pontoon. The client, Combinatie Baggerij with van Oord and Boskalis, rents the pontoon for a longer period of time, including bow container, winch spud system and wooden matrasses.
During this period, the pontoon will have 3 functions.
- Dredge pontoon: To flatten and dredge the bottom, the pontoon first carries a CAT390-5 Triple Boom with a Doppump 2320.
- Transport pontoon: The pontoon will then be used as a storage pontoon for the sheet piling to be removed.
- Backhoe pontoon: The pontoon will be used as a backhoe for dredging with an excavator.
