DEME Crews Busy at New Lock Terneuzen Project

DEME Group has just released the latest video update on their work at the New Lock Terneuzen in the Netherlands.

A large volume of sand was reclaimed for the construction of the 427 meter long, 55 meter wide and 16,44 meter deep lock.

This timelapse shows DEME’s trailing suction hopper dredgers ‘Bonny River’ and ‘Lange Wapper’ in action and how the teams are making progress on this impressive project.

Under the project, sand is being dredged and discharged through a 1km pipeline in the reclamation area of the new lock complex.

The first ship is expected to sail through the New Lock in 2022.

The New Lock will provide better access to the ports of Ghent and Terneuzen, and a faster flow of shipping between the Netherlands, Belgium and France. The New Lock will also provide an economic impulse for Zeelandic Flanders (Zeeuws-Vlaanderen), and the Flemish region.
