The Burgzand Noord (BZN 2) wreck is that of an armed seventeenth-century merchant ship loaded with scrap bronze cannons. The first multibeam recordings of the site are from 2012. The recordings from 2013, 2014 and 2016 show slight sedimentation of the area.
The wreck is protected - at least partly - by polypropylene nets. Divers from the Texel sports club have observed that parts of the protective nets have disappeared or been torn, which has been repaired in 2017.
