In 2018 a new tunnel will be constructed underneath the river “Het Scheur” near Rotterdam: the Blankenburgtunnel. In preparation of this project, some of the existing underground infrastructure needs to be relocated and replaced. One of these existing pipelines transports CO2 from refineries in the Rotterdam harbour to the greenhouses west of the city, the OCAP-pipeline. This pipeline has been replaced by means of Horizontal Directional Drilling.
