ICT Automatisering signs agreement to operate and control new Botlek bridge

ICT (ICT) has signed an agreement with CS-A15, a partnership of Croon Elektrotechniek and Strabag, for the supply of software to operate and control the new Botlek bridge. The new Botlek bridge will become one of the biggest lift bridges in Europe; the bridge will be wider and higher than the current bridge. As a result of this, shipping traffic can pass the bridge from both sides and therefore it has to be opened less often.

 “We’ve selected ICT as a partner because of its experience with complex projects, involving software operation. Based on a fixed scope including milestones CSA-15 made inquiries among various market parties. ICT matched CSA-15’s selection criteria.”
Arjen van Dam, Business Development Manager ICT: ”As of the first moment we are cooperating smoothly and we are proud to contribute to the new Botlek bridge. The entire project requests a high level of security and application of specific technologies and development methodologies. Over the years we have built a broad experience in remotely operating decentral infrastructure. Once more, this knowledge can be used well in this project.”
A-Lanes A15 is a partnership between Ballast Nedam, John Laing, Strabag and Strukton. For the specialist tunnel and traffic technical installations Croon Elektrotechniek and Strabag (together in the partnership CS A15) are important partners.
The proceedings involve the widening of the route and the building of a new Botlek bridge. The A15 is an important connection between the expanding Rotterdam harbour and industrial area and the European hinterland. The agreement has a duration of 25 years and a total nominal project value of approximately € 1.5 billion. With this the A15 MaVa project is the largest tender by the Department of Public Works ever.
