Rotterdam Project Achieves 3.8 Million Cubic Meters in One Week
The Maasvlakte 2 reclamation will add 2000 hectares (4942 acres) to the Port of Rotterdam.
On Sunday, April 25, the 120 millionth cubic meter of sand was sprayed onto the reclamation area – meaning that half the sand needed for the first phase of Maasvlakte 2 has been applied. The first container terminals are due to be ready for operation in 2013, so the project is on schedule.
The contract is worth about 1 billion euros ($1.44 billion).
