Wednesday morning at 7:14, the ‘blue’ test dike on JDL Contracting’s test field in Purmerend was breached in accordance with the calculations.
The completion of this phase of the testing signifies the culmination of nearly a year of field research. The data already gleaned from these tests will be analysed in the coming weeks and used in a report. This report will be submitted to the Expertise Netwerk Waterveiligheid (ENW – www.ENWinfo.nl) at the end of the summer for evaluation.
JLD Contracting aims to make the JLD dike stabiliser an accepted dike-reinforcement system this year.
