Boskalis wins €335m contract to extend Belgian terminal

Posted on October 19, 2022

It has been reported that a consortium, led by Dutch dredging and heavy-lift contractor Boskalis, has won a €335 million (£294 million) contract to extend the Europa container terminal in Antwerp, Belgium.

In partnership with Artes Roegiers, Artes Depret and Herbosch-Kiere, Boskalis will demolish the existing quay wall and replace it with a larger, 1,200m-long quay. The terminal expansion is anticipated to be carried out in phases over nine years.

It is said that extensive dredging will need to be carried out to deepen the wharf from 13.5m to 16m in order to accommodate the largest container vessels.

The project is expected to increase freight capacity at the Europa Terminal by a third.
