In a water-rich country like the Netherlands, it is vital that waterways, flood defences, bridges and locks are all in good condition. First and foremost so we can keep our feet dry, but the sheer economic importance means everything has to be fully operational 24/7.

Heijmans Asset Management is also responsible for the emergency service on various assignments. This is varied and important work. Work in which one team carries out daily repairs and maintenance on the likes of lock gates, while another team performs sonar measurements to ensure that the shipping channel of the Waal River is at the right depth. By using energy-efficient vessels or by scheduling work more efficiently on the basis of measurements and data, we are also working more and more sustainably on and along the water.
