MPET Deurganck dock - Antwerp


The relocation of Swiss shipping company MSC from Delwaide dock to Deurganck dock has meant expanding the whole western side of the dock.

This is familiar territory for Aannemingen Van Wellen after being involved in the construction of both sides of the dock in 2005. Once again, the surfaces for the reverse parking spaces, reefer zones, stacking zones and access roads will be built from the sand raised from the Scheldt. Both the earthworks, the drainage system, the construction and stabilisation of the foundations using natural stone chippings and the construction of the asphalt paving at the 800,000+ m² container terminal have been entrusted to the experts from Aannemingen Van Wellen.


Willemen Infra is a leading, Belgian road construction company with a regional presence in both Flanders and Wallonia. An important asset is that we have all aspects of the construction process under our own management and thus fully control the execution. Moreover, our team of 1,000 well-trained and experienced employees are willing to work at night and over the weekend to make sure they get everything done in time. In addition, thanks to our own COPRO-certified production and recycling sites, we are one of the leading producers for asphalt and road concrete.
