Team Van Oord partner Royal HaskoningDHV has been awarded first place on a major flood and coastal erosion framework in the south of England, and a separate contract to continue works to protect North Portsea Island.
The Southern England Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Consultancy Services Framework, awarded by Portsmouth City Council on behalf of 20 other local authorities as part of the Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership, has a total value of up to £40m.
In a separate business win, Royal HaskoningDHV has also been awarded the North Portsea Island detailed design contract, which will be delivered over the next 3-4 years, and is worth around £35m including construction.
Team Van Oord was involved in delivery of the first phase of the North Portsea project, the £6m Anchorage Park Scheme which was completed in December 2015.
The new Portsea Island contract will see Royal HaskoningDHV complete the detailed design of the remaining 6km of coastal defences, from Tipner Lake to Milton Common. Another TVO partner, Mackley, is working with Royal HaskoningDHV to provide Early Contractor Involvement (programme, buildability and value engineering input) through the design phases.
Under the Southern England Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Consultancy Services Framework, Royal HaskoningDHV will provide specialist consultancy services to support delivery of flood and coastal erosion protection projects across an area ranging from Dorset to Worthing in West Sussex.
With a long history of working in the Solent, often in partnership with Team Van Oord, and an in-depth knowledge of the assets and structures along the south coast, Royal HaskoningDHV is ideally placed to respond to the challenges that climate change and sea level rises are bringing to this part of the world.
