Antwerp Port Centralizes Technical and Nautical Departments

In order to streamline the Antwerp Port Authority’s technical and nautical departments and improve the service to customers, these departments are being centralized to form a joint cluster, the port said in its latest announcement. 

Three large new facilities will be set up at the site on quays 602-612: a central workshop (for the technical services), a nautical building (for the tug, dredging and crane services) and two floating dry docks with widths of 45 and 55 meters respectively.

Together the new cluster at quays 602-612 will employ around 500 people, the release stated.

The central workshops will then be expanded with an administrative and logistics complex. A budget of 50.1 million euros has been allocated to this centralization and reorganization project.

The Port Authority’s administrative departments were already centralized in the new Port House in 2016.
