Beatrix lock and casemates

Safe working
For the construction of a new lock complex of the Beatrix lock in Vreeswijk, the old complex and the adjacent casemates were moved. StabiAlert monitored the safety during this large-scale hoisting job on a continuous basis.

The old lock and the three casemates form part of the new Hollandic Water line that was built before the Second World War. The complex has been nominated for Unesco World Heritage status.

Sensors were positioned on the historic, concrete casemates and on the lock complex. The purpose of the monitoring was to have an alarm for employees in the shortest possible time, as they were working below and near the objects.
