River Deûle - Upgrading to 3.000 T-capacity

Upon completion of the upgrade of the embankments inbetween 2012 and 2014, dredging started in the spring of 2015 to allow ships of upto 3.000 tonnes on the river Deûle.

Stage 1 consisted of dredging the downstream part of the river. The majority of the dredged silt has been deposited in the designated spoil areas near Quesnoy-sur-Deûle. After completion of this spoil area, clayground has been used to cover the silt. Finally recovered topsoil from the spoil areas has been put on top of the clay to enable these areas to be refurbished into a new green area in the near future.

Another part of the dredged materials has been shipped to a designated spoil area some 100km away near St. Omer.
