The contract , to be signed shortly, with a value of approximately EUR 140 million comprises the construction and maintenance of a new sandy coastline for 20 years. The project is part of the second national High Water Protection Program.

The Hollands Noorderkwartier Regional Water Board and the Department of Public Works and Water Management are to contract the Van Oord (50%) - Boskalis (50%) joint venture to reinforce and maintain the Hondsbossche and Pettemer Sea Defence from Petten to Camperduin, on the northern stretch of the Dutch coastline.

The project will commence early 2014 and will encompass sand replenishment for the construction of a beach and dunes. The new coastal area offers room for nature and recreation. After completing the project on 31 December 2015, the Van Oord - Boskalis joint venture will be responsible for maintaining the coastline for another 20 years.

The replenishment activities will be carried out with four trailing suction hopper dredgers depositing 40 million cubic meters of sand sourced from sea.
