De funderingsblokken hebben ieder een afmeting van 10,00 x 6,00 meter (l x b) en bestaan uit zes palen (doorsnede 1,22 meter) met daaromheen een damwand, type A2. Gegevens met betrekking tot de gebruikte materialen en de exacte locaties van de spudpalen en de meerpalen worden, binnen twee maanden na het realiseren van de werken, door de vergunninghouder middels een palenplan aangeleverd.

Explanation:
Provided this is the item indicated in the references attached (do you have an image?), this should do it. Found this text in the first reference:
i) lowering the mat attached to at least one connecting leg or the spud can attached to each of the at least one connecting leg to sea bed;
and an image in the next.

Alternatively, this could refer to the above deck holder of the spud, of course. I've not (as yet) been able to find a suitable image or reference for this.
