HoogTij is a project ran by the Municipality of Zaanstad, Port of Amsterdam and the Haventerrein Westzaan Development Company. The port-related site is being developed by Port of Amsterdam.


A large site will be excavated to ensure free access to the North Sea Canal. This will create an 'encased' quay which will prevent vessels loading and unloading in the Port from blocking access to the waterway.

The large quantity of land and sand released will be used to raise the second stage of the HoogTij project, the dry site.

The Port of Amsterdam will commission the deep-sea quay, which will be carried out by the Hakkers en Van Oord development joint venture. The work is scheduled to be completed in late 2019. Once completed, the port-related site will be available for allocation.
