Van der Vlist Handles Beams for Island Causeway
115 concrete beams shipped to Dutch Antilles for Simpson Bay Bridge
Van der Vlist has handled the transport of 115 large concrete beams from the Netherlands to the island of St. Maarten in the Dutch Antilles.
The beams are part of the Simpson Bay Bridge, 700-meter-long causeway, connecting the island with an airport being built by Volker Construction. Each beam measured 20 meters long and weighs 30 tons. The shipment weighed 4,300 tons.
The Van der Vlist Terminal at Moerdijk unloaded the beams from trucks for temporary storage and then moved them to the quay where the beams were loaded on the 9,150-deadweight-ton Arne.
The causeway will be completed by the end of this year.
