On the basis of business and personal reasons, the lead partner in the consortium has decided to cease their efforts to come to a solid business case. The rest of the consortium has too little economical and technical perspective to continue. For that reason, the initiative has been taken out of the NLWorks portfolio.
As part of discussions on the government-to-government level, possibilities are explored for sand mining on at long distance from the coastline. This is still in a very early phase. Should an initiative with a viable business case emerge from this, NLWorks will get involved if needed.
