Award for Maasvlakte 2

The construction of the Port of Rotterdam’s Maasvlakte 2 expansion has been recognised by the award of the Prof. dr. ir. J.F. Agema Prize, which is awarded every five years to an innovative marine engineering work that was designed or constructed by a Dutch party.

This prize, the initiative of the KIVI (Royal Institute of Engineers), goes to the entire team of client, designer and contractor. In the case of the Maasvlakte 2 project, the winning team includes the Port of Rotterdam Authority and contractors Van Oord and Boskalis, as part of the PUMA consortium.

The PUMA consortium was one of the main contractors the first part of Maasvlakte 2, the expansion of the Port of Rotterdam between 2008 and 2013. This phase encompassed dredging to create a new port area covering 700 hectares, including the construction of an 11km seawall. The port extension has increased the port’s competitiveness as a world-class logistical node and industrial complex.
