We finance infrastructure on and near the water.
KfW IPEX-Bank is contributing approx. EUR 124 million to the financing.
The dam has been protecting the Netherlands against flooding for over 80 years. It also helps pump excess quantities of water from Lake Ijssel. Under this major project co-financed by KfW IPEX-Bank, Afsluitdijk is being rehabilitated and reinforced. The goal is for the enclosure dam to protect the Netherlands against both extraordinary flooding and a rising sea level in the future, too, thus also protecting the country against the consequences of climate change.
The dam is 32 km long and 90 m wide. The A7 motorway, a cycle path and a footway run along the top of the dam.
With this financing KfW IPEX-Bank is supporting the expansion of infrastructure and a project in the interest of the European community.
