New parts weir Grave

22 March 2017

In december 2016 the weir (water barrier) in Grave (NL) was severly damaged due to a collision by a ship. As a result the water level in the river Maas decreased rapidly and much more than intended.

Venus & De Waard was requested to produce and certify new fork pieces for the weir on very short notice. Thankt to the excellent cooperation with various companies, we were able to meet this demand. The parts were delivered on March 21 and the weir is functioning properly again.

Meanwhile Rijkswaterstaat takes steps to prevent problems with decreasing waterlevels in the future.
