To project overview
With the immersion of three 140m long tunnel elements underneath the IJ-river, including the closure joint, the actual connection is made between Amsterdam...
Immersion Projects developed an external positioning system which allows elements to ‘step’ over the seabed towards their final position.
Strukton developed the re-usable steel bulkheads, to replace the conventional concrete bulkheads. The steel bulkheads now have become the world wide standard....
All activities are performed by a tightly knit team of highly qualified specialists, each of whom has a thorough understanding of the importance of a smooth immersion project.Failure is not an option One of the most high-risk moments in tunnel construction is when the tunnel elements are immersed. Failure is not an option, as the potential (economic) damage in the event of a delay is too great. Naturally, a specialist is selected who has proven capabilities in difficult immersion projects. Immersion Projects is one of the world's top players in this market.

Strukton Immersion Projects collaborated on the construction of the Chioggia Flood Barrier, which is part of the MOSE Project, a storm-surge barrier being built in Italy to enable the Venetian Lagoon to be sealed off from the Adriatic Sea. The storm-surge barrier is being built at the three inlets to the lagoon: at Lido, Malamocco and Chioggia. The storm-surge barrier is made up of a system of caissons containing movable flood gates. The system will only be closed in case of extreme high water, similar to the Maeslant Barrier in the Netherlands.
