Storm Surge Barrier Ramspol, Holland




Storm Surge Barrier Ramspol, Holland
Project type:Storm surge barrier
Services:Concept tenderfase and detailed design
Country:The Netherlands
Completion:2002
Client:Ministry of Transport and Water management


The storm surge barrier near Ramspol was built to project the hinterland against flooding by high water from the IJsselmeer lake. The barrier consists of three inflatable, nylon-reinforced rubber dams, each 75 m long, 13 m wide and with a design height of 8.35 m. They are the largest dams of their kind ever built. The dam is inflated with air while a gravity-feed system allows water to flow in. The barrier is lowered again by pumping out the water and letting out the air.

DMC and Bridgestone developed the concept for BAM Civil during the tender phase, and after the contract was awarded, DMC did the detail design for the barrier, the dikes, the shore protection and the bottom protection. This design and construct project was presented with the prestigious Professor J.F. Agema Award (2005) in recognition of its innovated concept.
