This project is part of the European subsidised inland navigation project Seine Schelde Vlaanderen (Seine Scheldt Flanders). Thanks to these large-scale infrastructure works, longer barges with larger cargoes can sail between Paris and Antwerp. The Leie in Harelbeke was adapted to the arrival of longer ships. The new lock is 230 metres long, consists of 2 sections, and allows ships up to 4,500 tons to sail on the Leie. A hydraulically driven segment weir has been constructed for fully automatic regulation of the level of the Leie so as to prevent flooding or to ensure that the water level remains high enough for shipping. EQUANS was responsible for all the electromechanical equipment for the new inland lock: HV, LV, and UPS installations, mechanical and oleo-hydraulic equipment, screen operating and control system (PLC), remote monitoring and communication systems (call system, marine telephony, telephony), etc.
