SOFICO – Wallonia Locks (TEN-T)

  •  Reference: 20100068

Description

The project consists of the construction of two new 225 m x 25 m locks (international standard class VIb) and ancillary works at Lanaye (Lanaye Canal) and Ivoz-Ramet (mid-Meuse) and the dredging of the Ivoz-Ramet reach.

Objectives

The project is intended to eliminate structural bottlenecks within the trans-European network of inland waterways in the Walloon Region. The scheduled works will help to provide a more free-flowing and efficient service between Liège, the North Sea ports and the rest of Wallonia's industrial heartland.

Comments

The project comes under priority trans-European transport corridor 18: Rhine/Meuse-Main-Danube.

Up to EUR 100 million

Total cost (Approximate amount)

Up to EUR 200 million

Procurement

The Bank will ask the promoter to confirm that all public contracts for the project's implementation will be placed in accordance with EU legislation (Directive 2004/18/EC) and, where applicable, that notices will be published in the Official Journal of the European Union.
