Breakwater blocks for the IJsselmeer Dam (Afsluitdijk) in production

The first concrete breakwater block for the Afsluitdijk! Last week, construction consortium Levvel proudly presented the concrete breakwater element. Consmema developed the concrete moulds for the consortium. 

Concrete moulds 

We may say that this projects runs smoothly. In fact, the concrete moulds move through the plant on carts. During that process, the blocks have the time to harden properly. They are then stacked by a crane for their final hardening period. Eventually, a pontoon ships these Levvel Blocs to the Afsluitdijk. 

Protecting the Afsluitdijk 

We are dealing with rising sea levels. To protect the Afsluitdijk for the next 100 years, the innovative concrete wave breaker elements were designed. In the coming years, Levvel will install 75,000 of these breakwaters on the dike.
