.. Keeping the Dutch Feet Dry. AfsluitDijk. The Netherlands.
The AfsluitDijk (Barrier Dam) was built in 1932 and until 2006 was the longest seawall in the world.
It divides the IJsselMeer (internal fresh water lake) of the Wadden Sea (southern branch of the North Sea). It is 32 km long, 90 m wide and rises about 7.25 m above sea level.
The water level of the IJsselMeer changes in summer and winter, but in average is kept 0.25 m below the sea level.
The lake discharges into the sea twice a day with the low tides through two sluices complexes.
There is an important project that intends to adapt this dam to the rising sea-levels.
The idea is to reinforce the embankements on the sea side and to build a large pumping station with a capacity of about 500 m3/sec.
As per my calculations, this pumping station would have a power requirement of about 3,500 KWe.
