Volkerak Revision | Hydraulic System to speed up the levelling process

Hycom projecten | Civiele werken


The Volkerak locks are part of a busy shipping route, the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt Delta.

In order to ensure shorter waiting times for the ships travelling through these locks Hycom has adjusted the existing hydraulic system, also provided by Hycom, of the locks by adding cylinders and a 3th hatch in the ebb doors to speed up the levelling process.
