Dredging company Deme, based in Zwijndrecht, Antwerp province, is part of the consortium selected to carry out the development of Blue Gate Antwerp, a business park to be located on the heavily polluted site of the former Petroleum Zuid. The other partners in the Blue O’pen group are Mechelen’s Bopro management and consultancy group and Dredging International, another division of Deme.

The site lies close to the Scheldt to the south of Antwerp and, once cleaned, will become a 63-hectare site for companies working in productions, logistics and research and development. The consortium will be responsible for de-polluting the site then maintaining it. The total cost of Blue Gate Antwerp is estimated at €58 million; the government of Flanders is providing a subsidy of €24 million.
