Quay Walls at the Amaliahaven – Rotterdam

Amaliahaven Rotterdam

The project

The Port of Rotterdam Authority, in collaboration with clients Rotterdam World Gateway and APM Terminals, is working on the expansion of quay walls for the container terminals. This expansion includes the construction of an almost 3-kilometre-long deep sea quay wall and an associated rear crane rail.

The challenge

MariTeam, a joint venture of which Iv is a member, was contracted to undertake the design of the deep sea quay, from preliminary design to technical advice during the implementation. During the design process, MariTeam conducted extensive pile testing, testing different types of foundation piles to the point of failure. The main objective was to optimise the design of the deep sea quay and the rear crane rail. MariTeam was responsible for the engineering of the test assembly, which was capable of generating a load of 2500 tonnes, and closely monitored the test execution and interpretation of the results.

The impact

As Europe’s largest seaport, the Port of Rotterdam plays a crucial role in the maritime sector. Through the collaboration between the Port of Rotterdam Authority and MariTeam, the port’s infrastructure is undergoing modernisation and expansion, thus increasing the capacity and efficiency of the container terminals. The expertise of Iv and other partners within MariTeam guarantees a high technical level and an innovative approach. This collaboration strengthens the position of the Port of Rotterdam as a leading hub for global shipping and contributes to economic growth and employment in the region.
