Expansion of DP World - Antwerp


DP World Belgium loads and unloads containers and cargo from over the entire world. It is this work that makes DP World such an important link between maritime transport and transport via roadways, inland waterways and railways.
This 3,145,000 € project consists of the construction of the final section of the container terminal.

The work performed on this project by Aannemingen Van Wellen includes the installation of a sewer system, the installation of a system of draw lines, earthworks for the installation of a caisson, a foundation in natural stone chips and finally the laying of asphalt and concrete pavements.

The collaboration with Aswebo is extremely important for the in situ stabilization of the foundation with cement.
Since several contractors will be working simultaneously or consecutively on the same terrain, strict adherence to the highly detailed planning is of utmost importance.

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.
