The Afsluitdijk is protected against the high waves of the Wadden Sea by a new type of concrete blocks with a patented design, the so-called Levvelbloc (the XblocPlus is an optimisation of the Xbloc of BAM). Levvel will manufacture about 75.000 Levvel-blocs. For this purpose, the company has built a temporary production facility in Harlingen. The enormous blocks are manufactured by pouring a specific concrete mix in heavy moulds.
In order to guarantee the quality, Levvel requires full traceability of the concrete blocks, from production to installation on the dike. The solution should take into account the climatically harsh environment and the robust industrial materials used. Download the case study to learn more.
