The design of a thorough renovation of the Royers Lock in Antwerp is put to study. The lock will be completely renovated, resulting in important increase of length and width of the lock. GEO is responsible for the coordination and execution of the geotechnical investigation. We also contribute to the drawing up of the dossier, with plans and specifications. During the execution of the renovation works, we will give geotechnical support and monitor the behavior of the soil and the lock. The renovation works will start in 2017.
