IJmuiden sluisexcursie

A new large sea lock is being constructed at the entrance of the North Sea Canal at IJmuiden that will provide access to the Amsterdam port region. The new lock will be 500 meters long, 70 meters wide and 18 meters deep, making it the world’s largest sea lock. Young PIANC and Young CEDA organized for 100 attendants a guided tour. The tour included provided the opportunity to meet the people involved in this project, to sail with a tour boat through the project site and be informed about the details of the project. The event ended with a dinner and some social drinks.
