About

The existence of the Amsterdamsche Ballast Maatschappij can be attributed to the North Sea canal [Noordzeekanaal]. Its original operations back in 1877 were simplicity itself: empty merchant ships going to sea obtained dune sand as ballast. In later years, the company also applied itself to dredging. In 1878 kreeg de heer Zur Muhlen vergunning van het Rijk tot het afgraven van de duinen en dat zand werd door hem verhandeld aan de schepen die via het Noordzeekanaal geballast terug moesten naar zee. Zo ontstond de naam "De Ballast" In 1900 vormden de heren Moorman en Kramers een gemeenschap van zaken tot het afgraven van zand (bij IJmuiden) voor ballast en voor wegen en het ophogen van terreinen. In 1910 werd de heer Charles Vilder aangetrokken, die DE MAN van de Ballastmaatschappij is geworden Combinatie van Amsterdamsche Ballastmij en Nijmeegsche Aannemers- en Baggerbedrijf was de Zandexploitatiemaatschappij "s Gravenhage" H.F. Boersma set up in business as a contractor in Den Haag from 1899 onwards. In 1917, Boersma founded the company Nederlandse Aannemingsmaatschappij N.V. The Ballast Nedam Group came into being through the amalgamation of the two companies in 1969. Combinatie van Amsterdamsche Ballastmij en Nijmeegsche Aannemers- en Baggerbedrijf was de Zandexploitatiemaatschappij "s Gravenhage" 1989: Amsterdamse Ballast, Nedam and Broekhoven merged to form Ballast Nedam. 2001: Ballast Nedam Dredging and Ham merge to form Ballast Ham Dredging. 2002 Ballast Ham Dredging owned by Dragados Spain and sold to BAM NBM 2003: Van Oord ACZ en Ballast Ham Dredging merge to form Van Oord NV Equipment (active) We found no active equipment for this owner.
