Project leader, Environment Management

Discovering Environmental Stewardship: In a recent interview, we explored the world’s largest sea lock project with Jan Rinstra, an esteemed environmental manager. Jan’s primary role revolves around water management, emphasising eco-conscious policies. Throughout the discussion, we learn about the IJmuiden Sea Lock’s significance in promoting sustainable practices and its vital function in enhancing water resources, countering the effects of climate change, and facilitating maritime traffic with its impressive engineering.
