The Maeslant barrier has been fitted with new bearings, using composite materials, which have been developed by Rijkswaterstaat and Solico. These bearings combine a low friction coefficient with a very high load capacity. For this purpose, steel bearings are not strong enough. The use of composite bearings has proven to be highly efficient as this has led to time and cost savings in the maintenance activities.
