Sustainability thanks to the reuse of concrete blocks and quarrystone

For the seawall on the north side of Maasvlakte 2, the designers have selected a breakwater from a number of variants. This breakwater will reuse concrete blocks and a share of the quarrystone from the existing Maasvlakte seawall. Reuse at this scale is unique and will not only reduce the cost of the project, but also benefit its sustainability. Less new rock will need to be extracted and shipped in by boat. This is better for the environment.

Unique characteristics:

> Innovative profile limits the quantity of rock required for construction
> Reuse of the concrete blocks and the quarrystone from the existing seawall
