  • The sand engine is a unique nature area by technique created for coastal protection between The Hague and Hoek van Holland. Through cooperation between TU Delft and the state of the art, useful reuse of sand released during the creation of the Maasvlakte is applied. LL. Nature and technology work optimally together here.

  • Earlier you learned in school that the dunes and the dikes protected our country from flooding. With the increase of the sea level are the dunes and dikes may be low. .. Every year or every few years sand spraying, is very costly. The sand engine is a unique project: a peninsula, which you can take or where you on the Lake can kiten. Both are worth to do. The raised sand of this headland blown away to complement existing dunes and is carried away with ebb and flow direction Den Helder. And thus ensures further coastal protection of the Dutch coast. Free visit and direct experience of our coastal protection. Do! With any kind of weather!
