MPET Infrastructure works, east side - Deurganckdok


After the expansion of the complete west side of the dock, which was also performed by Aannemingen Van Wellen, it is now the east side's turn. This expansion will be completed as a result of a close collaboration between MSC and PSA under their new name, MPET (MSC PSA European Terminal).

This project will be realized by THV Van Wellen – ASWEBO with the subcontractor Franki Construct N.V.
The infrastructure works consist of the laying of sewage pipeline in an open trench, earthworks using 3D-guided bulldozers, natural stone chips for the foundation and the laying of asphalt pavement.

For the work on the connecting bridge, a piled foundation will be laid and foundation footings and pilings will be constructed on-site. The bridge deck will then be constructed on this base.

These works represent an extremely important portion of the turnover and moreover must be completed within a short time frame. Achieving this requires strict planning.

Willemen Infra came into being on 1 July 2018 as a result of the merger between Aswebo, Aannemingen Van Wellen and the infrastructure department of Kumpen and is a leading road builder and asphalt and concrete manufacturer.
