IJmuiden sea lock overhead trolley placed

Another great milestone in the new sea lock IJmuiden project! The overhead trolley that Hollandia Infra made and completely assembled in Krimpen has now been placed in the door shaft of the inner main and will be adjusted and tested in the coming period to be connected by Hollandia to the lock gate of the inner main in the coming period. The upper roller carriage drives the lock gate and ensures that it can be opened and closed.
The entire operation took about 8 hours in total. The hoisting work to place the 200-ton overhead trolley was very precise, and it was also important that there was little wind.
