Maasvlakte 2 is a 2.9 billion euro expansion in the Port of Rotterdam, resulting in an extra 1000 ha terminal area of 1.000 hectares dedicated to container handling (600 hectares), distribution facilities (200 hectares) and chemical industry (200 hectares). In total a sea defense of 12 km is erected, 250 Mm3 sand is dredged and reclaimed, 10 km of quaywall (to -20 m) is built. This nearshore area is a particularly sensitive natural habitat (both marine and terrestrial life). For this reason design, planning and execution of the works was done with utmost care.
