04/2020 Challenging job at the Wilhelmina Lock Zaandam ~ Beelen Sloopwerken

Even though it will certainly be until the end of this year that this Zaandam ‘lock of the future’ is ready, we have already done our bit. The historic lock dates back to 1903, and really needs a thorough overhaul.

Eventually, the entire lock will be replaced by a more modern version and will be used for commercial and recreational navigation. First of all, some demolition work will be started and we were allowed to assist with this with our CAT 352 special long reach.
