Lock upgrade at Belfeld, Sambeek and Limmel

The locks at Belfeld, Sambeek and Limmel will be upgraded to improve the passage of vessels and to create a two- way traffic. Our good references at the recent lock upgrades in Born, Heel and Maasbracht, resulted now in delivering the mooring equipment to this inland waterlock.

Eurotech Benelux delivered the casted mooring bollards and steel safety ladders, which will be installed on the quay and on the lock. This type of bollard has been used for decades in many of the inland locks in the Netherlands. Due to the increase of the vessel size, Eurotech Benelux was asked to re-designed the bollards and improve the capacity to 250kN. The 86 supplied bollards are recently upgraded to 250kN cap bollards. Besides the bollards Eurotech Benelux also designed, fabricated and supplied all steel safety ladders. This concerns 58 ladders including top hand bar and ladder holders with a maximum length of 5,50m.
