THE BIGGEST SEALOCK IN THE WORLD!!
The construction of the new sea lock is in full swing. A new 70 meters wide, 500 meters long and 18 meters deep sea lock will be constructed next to the northern lock. This will provide an even smoother access to the port of Amsterdam, with no tidal windows for the capesize/panamax vessels, a quicker turnaround and access for taller ships with deeper drafts. The new sea lock will be open for traffic late 2019.
