With the construction of the Seine-Nord Europe canal, the French waterway authority VNF investigates the necessity to upgrade its waterway network to CEMT class Vb, in order to cope with a foreseen traffic increase of a factor three to four. In this context, VNF has selected IMDC for two four-year framework contracts for traffic capacity and nautical trajectory studies on the 240 km long network.

The municipality of Kruibeke houses a Flood Area of 600 hectares. The construction of this water storage is part of a large scale integrated flood defence project for Flanders; the Sigmaplan. During the combined event of a spring tide and a northwestern Storm - known to push vast amounts of North Sea water in the mouth of the river Scheldt - this area can store up to 36.000.000 m³ of river water.
