Pilot projects in Upper Zeescheldt

As part of the sustainable management plan for the Upper Zeescheldt, Herbosch-Kiere carried out dredging works in order to improve the navigability of the river while respecting the surrounding natural environment. Three pilot projects were carried out in order to establish how the frequency and the scope of the dredging works required could be limited in the future.

For these pilot projects, we carried out the sounding of a section of the river, the dredging of 72,000 m³ and reuse of the spoil in the river, the supply and installation of soil protection in the form of fascine mattresses and the supply, filling and installation of geotextile sacks.
