Major Lock Expansion In Belgium

Located on the Belgium-Netherlands’ border, the Lanaye Locks link the Albert and Juliana Canals, the latter of which is a side canal of the River Meuse. The three locks are a vital route between Northern and Southern Europe and have operated alongside each other since 1964 but, as two of these are too narrow to accommodate even smaller convoy, the larger lock had over time become a serious bottle neck for canal traffic. Xylem was commissioned to help to address the challenges associated with seasonal water level changes in the canal. Read the full case study to learn more.
