Commissioned by Damen Shipyards in Vlissingen-Oost, De Kok Staalbouw fitted Dock 2 with a mega-roof. The gigantic steel covering is 270 metres long, 80 metres wide, and approximately 65 metres high. To give you an idea of its size, the roof is the height of an 18-storey tower block and has a surface area similar to that of three football pitches laid end to end. The total weight of the steel structure is approximately 3,600 tonnes.
De Kok Staalbouw also supplied the crane track girders and the two overhead cranes, each with a 75-tonne lifting capacity. Under ideal conditions, Damen Shipyards can now work on the largest maritime vessels.
