A 1071 m long extension of an existing quay wall in the port of Zeebrugge.
Quay 1071 is located at the Southern Canal Dock, in the inner port of Zeebrugge and extends the existing Bastenaken quay to create the largest dock in the port of Zeebrugge.
It connects the existing Bastenaken quay with the dock’s end.
Building a quay wall is as always a real challenge. Once the dock has been adapted to accommodate ships with a draft of 16 m, the diaphragm wall will withstand the pressure of not less than 21 metres of earth.
But this work site also has its very specific challenges:
Keeping a high work rhythm in such conditions is possible only thanks to the very hard work of the team.
And above all, they have made their work site a model of safety and tidiness. So cheers to them!
