Rijkswaterstaat pays 238 million euros in dispute over Afsluitdijk

Rijkswaterstaat has reached a settlement with the Levvel Consortium for additional work at Afsluitdijk. Minister Harpers (Infrastructure and Water Management) reports in a letter To the Chamber of Deputies that the consortium will receive 238 million euros for overtime.

Afsluitdijk’s renovation began in 2018. This year it will be 90 years since the dam was completed. It should be a festive year, complete with renewal, but at the end of 2020 It has already become clear The renewal will take longer.

Rijkswaterstaat provided the association with incorrect information from the start of the project. As a result, many of the consortium designs had to be adapted. In addition to paying the amount, it was decided to cancel the renewal, reinforcement and maintenance of existing drain holes from the contract with Levvel.


Drainage channels are used to drain water into the Wadden Sea. This contract will be rolled out again. The money that must be saved is partially used to pay the 238 million.

It is not clear when the entire project will be completed. Harpers says a “significant part” of Liveville’s work should be completed by the end of this year. It is not yet clear how much it will cost to renovate the drainage channels, because it still has to be put up for tender.
