Technical Visit to Maasvlakte 2 FutureLand visitor centre
13.00 - 18.00 hours
Situated on site at the Port of Rotterdam's landmark port development, FutureLand will offer attendees an opportunity to see Maasvlakte 2 under construction and to learn about the project from both the owner, the Port of Rotterdam Authority, and the contractors, PUMA. In addition to informative exhibits, FutureLand also offers a wide range of attractions, including the Future Flight Experience, a 3D computer simulation giving a bird's eye view of how the Maasvlakte 2 project will look in 2033.
Visitors will also have the chance to see several dredgers at work at the site, which saw its first material pumped ashore in January. Since then five to 10 dredgers at a time have been busy rainbowing sand to create new land for the port. As of September, around 49M m3 of the total 220M m3 has been put in place. Quay construction work for the site's first container terminal will begin in January 2010 and the first ship is due to dock in 2013.
