Sediment management in ports

Sedimentation in ports is a frequent and continuous problem that leads to time-consuming and costly dredging operations. For safety reasons, ships often do not dare to go through the silt at all or insufficiently deep.

Antea Group conducts various studies with regard to this complex issue, through physical research with scale models, numerical research with hydraulic and sediment models, and measurements at sea and in ports. Our expertise has been sought in Belgium (Zeebrugge and the Western Scheldt) and abroad.
