The Dutch Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management has temporarily allocated the maintenance for the Lemmer-Delfzijl main waterway for the period 2019-2023 to the Dynniq-Heijmans consortium. The project includes the monitoring and inspection of three canals and the inspection and maintenance of all bridges, locks, and beds of the waterways.

Lemmer-Delfzijl Main Waterway

The Lemmer-Delfzijl main waterway is 118 kilometres long and is one of the most important waterways of the country. The Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management has owned and maintained this main waterway since 2014 and ensures the easy and safe passage for larger vessels. This has also allowed further expansion by which the waterway now has sufficient scope for more transport by water. The main waterway consists of the Princess Margriet Canal (in the province of Friesland), the Van Starkenborgh Canal, and the Eems Canal (both in the province of Groningen). Dynniq is responsible for all the electrotechnical installations for this project.

Best Value approach

The temporary granting of the project to Dynniq-Heijmans Syndicate was based on the Best Value approach. This approach is based on the most favourable value-price ratio. Of the six submitted tenders, the quality of the consortium stood out. The Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management expects to allocate the project definitively by the end of September.
