Expansion of the lock system in Lanaye. Construction of the 4th lock, which connects the Albert Canal and the Meuse river, straddles the border between Belgium and the Netherlands and allows the circulation of convoys of 9.000 tons on the Albert Canal.
Since 2011, BESIX has been working for SOFICO on the construction of the 4th lock of Lanaye, which connects the Albert Canal and the Meuse river and straddles the border between Belgium and the Netherlands.
The massive 225x25 meter lock, extending over a 14 meter drop, is the largest civil engineering project in Wallonia in the last ten years.
Being the specialist in foundations of the BESIX Group, Franki Foundations has realized the first part of this huge project.
