Municipality of Alphen a/d Rijn 2013

Ecopark The Limes is more than just a new waste collection station for the Municipality. This waste collection station is a sustainable step forward in the waste disposal sector. Ecopark The Limes wants to stimulate the environmental awareness of visitors from a sustainable approach. By encouraging proper waste sorting, waste can be used again as a raw material for new products. The new Ecopark also uses solar and wind energy. To complete the picture, the Charity Association Alphen manages a workplace and an education room where primary school children learn about waste, raw materials and economical use of the earth.

This D&C project was carried out by consortium Den Ouden Aannemingsbedrijf and Nieuwenhuizen-Daandels Bouw. The construction of this new waste collection station started in May 2013 and was completed in November 2013.

Client: Implementation period:

Province of Noord-Brabant 2011-2012

Den Ouden Contracting ensured the delivery of the design, preparation, implementation (and maintenance) for above-mentioned projects concerning the accessibility of bus stops. The bus stops had to be made ​accessible for the elderly and disabled. For instance raised platforms (with safety tiles for the blind) and various furniture like a bench, a public waste bin and bike racks were installed. The work for each bus stop was relatively limited, but the total project was a major logistical challenge. Good communication between all parties involved was very important in order to ensure the requirements and desired quality were met. During the realization phase temporary bus stops were arranged in the immediate vicinity of the bus stops. In total 2,000 m of special bus stop kerbs was used. The province, the municipalities as well as the transport companies are very pleased with the method and implementation by Den Ouden on the bus stop accessibility project. The project involved a total of 180 bus stops.

Municipality of Eindhoven 2010-2012

The roundabout between the Heerbaan in Veldhoven and the North Brabantlaan in Eindhoven has been converted into an intersection, called the “Hovenring”.

The Hovenring symbolizes the access to Meerhoven, Eindhoven and Veldhoven and is strategically located near the A2 highway. The intersection is part of the key project ‘West Corridor’, a development zone extending from the central station to Eindhoven Airport. The Hovenring was created because in recent years traffic has increased in such a way that an adjustment was required. The Eindhoven Municipality wanted to lead cyclists over the intersection in a faster, safer and more comfortable way. The bridge consists of a 70 m high pylon, 24 high cables and a circular bridge deck and is entirely made of steel. On the inside of the bridge deck a ballast ring is attached with a diameter of 72 meters. Bodac carried out the explosives detection at the location of the Hovenring. Den Ouden Contracting in collaboration with BAM ensured the construction of the Hovenring.

Water board Aa and Maas 2012

The work performed is located in the floodplains of the Maas river at Vierlingsbeek. A total of 270 fish barriers must be eliminated. Until 2015 the water board deals with 50 locations. The three major obstacles to the Maas river are Sluice Crèvecoeur, Pumping station Van Sasse and Watermill Vierlingsbeek.

The fish in the Molenbeek at Vierlingsbeek can now freely continue swimming. Because of the construction of the fish passage, the stream has no more obstacles to fish passage. The fish passage is part of a project to bring back to life the side brooks of the Maas river. Obstacles to fish passage are cleared and streams get back into their natural channel. A historic waterwheel has also been restored to its former glory. The work consisted mainly of: • soil excavation, transport and disposal; • the application of a “De Wit” passage; • the installation of cascades for basin fish ladder; • drainage works; • the placement of sheet piling curtains.

Municipality of Arnhem 2011-2013

In May 2011 the first work started for the subsequent widening of the road; the soil decontamination of the former gas factory site, the necessary demolition of some buildings and the repositioning of cables and pipelines. The cable ducts had been contaminated with polluted soil, which was rehabilitated simultaneously with explosives detection works. Several explosives and remnants of explosives were found. To ensure safety a separation cloth was placed in the ducts, so that the boundary of the safe and clean soil remains clearly visible. Below, a summary of the detected CE: • 1x 5.5 inch high explosive grenade, fired (UK) • 1x 3 inch rocket (UK) • 5x shell small-caliber ammunition

This road will be converted into a road with multi-level crossing and 2 x 2 lanes along its whole length. Following a historical research carried out by Bodac, it was decided to conduct a search for Conventional Explosives (CE) from the Second World War. Due to the large amount of CE that was found it was not possible to destroy them all at once. A total of more than 30 explosives was found, which were blown up in two separate explosions. The whole road was closed to traffic during the work.

DEN OUDEN GROUP | References Bodac District ‘The Eng’ Veen Client: Implementation period:

Municipality of Aalburg 2011

For the new district ‘Den Eng' in Veen Bodac has conducted explosives research. In addition to surface detection, depth detection has also been carried out. With the aid of a cone with a magnetometer the soil can be searched for large metal objects up to a maximum of 18 meters below the surface. In areas with a ‘weak’ subsurface, (aircraft) bombs may have penetrated the soil to a greater depth. To find conventional explosives at such depths it is necessary to work with an MDE-drive. This is a long lance with a sensing probe in its tip, which is pressed into the soil in accordance with a predetermined measuring grid (as in probing). This implies that a (senior) OCE-expert is real time monitoring the penetration of the measuring probe into the ground. When a disturbance is measured the OCE-expert can immediately stop the process and register the measurement. This way a major area ​can be mapped relatively quickly and accurately. An advantage of this method is that the soil structure remains intact. During the excavation work remains of a 60 LB SAP missile were found. This resulted in an adjustment of the search order. As expected according to the historical research, remnants of an aircraft bomb were also found.

Department of Waterways 2013-2014

Following a historical research carried out by Bodac, the Department of Waterways requested Bodac to search the outports of the ‘Lock Belfeld’ for Conventional Explosives (CE) from the Second World War. In the future, civil works will take place at the project site with the purpose of deepening the outports of the ‘East Lock’. The surface of the search area was approximately 30,000 m². A total of 23 suspicious disturbances had been interpreted from the detection data. Divers have approached the suspicious objects to determine whether they were explosives. A part of the project area could not be detected and was therefore dredged with explosion-protected equipment and the dredging was subsequently sieved.

Municipality of Rotterdam 2012-2013

The largest roofpark in Europe is located on the top of shopping boulevard ‘Bigshops Parkboulevard’ in the Vierhaven street in Rotterdam. The design of the roofpark was carried out by contractor Mostert de Winter, part of the BAM. The roofpark is remarkable and unique in the Netherlands because of its size and design. The park is one kilometer long, 80 meters wide (80,000 m²) and its highest point is 9 meters. The park has a lot of green areas and is easily accessible from the district. What makes this roofpark unique is the combination of multiple functions on the same surface. It consists of a shopping boulevard, a service road, a sea wall that protects Rotterdam from the sea and a park on the roof of the complex to give a green boost to the environment.

Den Ouden has carried out the following main activities: • supply and transport of approximately of 50,000 m³ Substrado® (topsoil mixture with perlite); • supply and transport of 8,000 m³ construct perlite. Both products are lightweight and therefore ideal as a light filling material. The soil was supplied with special large trucks. Transportation tasks were carried out in the evenings and at night, to avoid traffic disturbances around Rotterdam.

Municipality of Dordrecht 2010-2014 Inc. prolongation

Along with the Municipalities of Papendrecht, Zwijndrecht, Sliedrecht, Alblasserdam and the ‘Sport Company’, the Municipality of Dordrecht has signed a four-year contract with Den Ouden. Since October 1, 2010, we undertake the processing of green waste from these five municipalities and the ‘Sport company’ in Dordrecht. Part of the green waste provides sustainable energy for 770 households. The assignment includes the cost-effective and sustainable transport and processing of municipal green waste from these five municipalities. The municipalities want to process a part of their green waste in a more environmentally friendly manner. A projectgroup was formed to collectively implement this trajectory. In addition to the environmental benefits through sustainable energy and reduction of CO2 emissions, this new contract has also delivered a significant cost-saving to the municipalities and the ‘Sport company’. The municipalities together save more than 40% by the increase in volume.

Kuipers Infra, for Department of Waterways 2013-2014

The Department of Waterways is going to create a pass in the ‘Krabbenkreekdam’ in order to connect the nature reserve ‘Rammegors’ with the Oosterschelde. As a result the ‘Rammegors’ will be flooded. This salinisation should lead to the creation of valuable mud flats and salt marshes.

End of August 2013 Den Ouden started with the removal of 63 ha. of trees and shrubs. Then a trench was dug so the water from the Oosterschelde can soon flow into the nature reserve. The (neglected) trees and shrubs were removed and chipped (reduced) by Den Ouden. The wood chips were then transported to different biomass plants in the area.

Den Ouden Group


DEN OUDEN GROUP | References Green Recycling Supply of biomass for sustainable energy Biomass is organic material used as biofuel and substitution of fossil fuel. Suitable streams are selected by a carefully controlled collection process. The prunings are separated from the other green flows and cleared of contaminants. Then the prunings are chipped or reduced into the fraction desired by the customer. We deliver biomass in the form of Shreds (20-100 to 20-300) and Chips (pruning chips, wood chips). The benefits of biomass are an environmentally responsible processing method, uniform quality, continuous availability and a contribution to CO2 reduction. Biomass is mainly used in power plants, industrial heaters and wood stoves.
