Bring on the storm season; successful test flood defenses Maeslantkering and Hartelkering
Always an exciting moment: the annual operational closure of the Maeslant and Hartel barriers. The closure was carried out on Saturday night (September 19). Because of COVID19 with a smaller team than usual. The test went without any significant details. The Nieuwe Waterweg was again available for shipping traffic at the end of the afternoon on Sunday.
Compliments to the SHERPA Operational Team (combination: Croonwolter & dros and Hollandia Services). Bring on the storm season!
