Many bridges in the Netherlands are currently undergoing renovation, including the Zwaanskuikenbrug at Hei- en Boeicop. This swing bridge over the Merwede Canal will be equipped with a new road surface, new controls, new cabling, and will be freshly repainted. As a temporary solution for cyclists and pedestrians, Van Schie has constructed a modern VSP pontoon bridge here. Ambulances are also allowed to use it. Other vehicular traffic must take a detour.
Like an exotic snake, this double gas pipeline winds its way through the Amsterdamse Bos, ready to go underground. This happens through so-called ‘horizontal directional drilling’.
Everyone is working on the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy, with the aim of creating a cleaner world. The number of electric cars is rapidly increasing, and charging stations are sprouting up like mushrooms.
A playground for steel partitions
On the outskirts of Sloterdijk, lies the playground ‘De Brettenburg.’ It is a large area that needed to be expanded with sand dunes and alternative play equipment.
Piece of cake
On a cold winter morning at a large nursery in the Betuwe, a 35-ton gas generator and a transformer station had to be hoisted into the company’s yard.
All hands on deck
Every year, boat owners eagerly await the start of the boating season on April 1st. From that date, most bridges and locks are open again at regular times for recreational boating.
Bruges by the sea
Every summer, residents of Bruges, tourists, and visitors to this beautiful city can enjoy free swimming in an outdoor area located in the old town. For several years now, Van Schie has been creating a sort of ‘beach pool’ on pontoons in the heart of the city.
In the middle of the fields, a worker from a competing company accidentally drove his excavator off the embankment and into the ditch. This happened on a narrow path. With the help of a Van Schie crane, they lifted the machine out of the water and put it back on solid ground.
An excellent pontoon bridge, assembled using VSP pontoons. It’s a modular system that can be expanded both in length and width, complete with railings and access ramps.
Having all the disciplines in-house is incredibly useful. This Broshuis low-loader combination from Van Schie, seen here at the yard, transports our heaviest machinery to construction sites all over the Netherlands.
There’s no limit to Padel
Padel is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world, combining elements of tennis and squash. However, the sport also causes a lot of disturbances.
Light art on the water
The Amsterdam Light Festival is a seven-week-long event that took place for the eleventh time last winter. It features a boat and walking route along twenty unique light art installations against the backdrop of our beautiful canals. In the world of light sculptures, this festival is unique as it entirely takes place on and along the water.
