  • Savoir-faire flamand pour le nouveau complexe d’écluses du canal de Panama?
    La Panama Canal Authority est à la recherche de savoir-faire étranger pour la construction d’un nouveau complexe d’écluses sur la voie navigable côté Pacifique. Un consortium franco-belge dirigé par Tractebel, qui devrait bientôt voir le jour, entend proposer sa candidature dans une première phase pour la conception et ensuite pour la construction des écluses. On attend un important apport d’APEC et de l’Entreprise portuaire d’Anvers, qui disposent d’un savoir-faire de taille avec le développement du port d’Anvers en termes de construction et d’exploitation de complexes d’écluses. Panama recevra la semaine prochaine une proposition présentant le concept flamand pour un nouveau complexe d’écluses sur la voie navigable.
  • Werf & Vlasnatie et De Dijcker créent Antwerp Bulk Cleaning
    Le manutentionnaire anversois Werf & Vlasnatie et l’entreprise de transport routier De Dijcker (basée à Vlierzele en Flandre orientale) viennent de s’allier au sein de la joint-venture Antwerp Bulk Cleaning. Elle sera exploitée à proximité du complexe Rubens (les installations de Werf & Vlasnatie) et sera constituée d’un hall de rinçage pour le nettoyage de camions-citernes et containers ayant transporté des vracs secs non dangereux. L’implantation sur la rive droite de l’Escaut est importante dans ce contexte: aujourd’hui, les transporteurs doivent se déplacer vers les installations sur la rive gauche (ou plus loin encore, à Lokeren ou Hoogstraten) pour le lavage obligatoire des semi-remorques citernes. A partir de l’année prochaine ils ne devront donc plus faire ce trajet inutile.
  • Le trafic fluvial se stabilise en Allemagne
    Au cours du premier semestre, l’ensemble des voies navigables allemandes ont vu transiter 118,6 millions de tonnes de marchandises, soit 0,5% de moins que lors de la même période en 2000. C’est ce qu’annonce le Statistisches Bundesambt sur base des chiffres provisoires du premier semestre.
