Waterworks or hydraulic engineering applies to any and all building projects on or near the water. This could range from building or maintaining quay walls, jetties, locks and other port infrastructure to dredging works and beach, shore or soil protection works.View references
Hydraulic engineering is one of our key domains of expertise. Thanks to our many years of experience in this industry, we now have both the specific skills required and an extensive fleet of seagoing equipment. Everything that is needed to bring waterworks to a successful conclusion. Tugs, pontoons and Lynn, our unique lifting platform, are at the disposal of the entire group.
Everything started with Waterworks for Artes Depret, Artes Roegiers and Artes TWT. As a result, our companies, over the years, accumulated a wealth of experience and know-how on this particular line of work. Gradually, they began expanding their activities into Civil Engineering and Buildings.
In the ports of Zeebrugge, Ghent and Antwerp, to mention the most obvious names, Artes Depret and Artes Roegiers have a long history of building quay walls, jetties, locks ... Artes TWT, on the other hand, is best known for conducting maintenance work on locks, banks and jetties.
The Artes Group has also conducted significant waterworks abroad, such as the assembly of wind turbines at Blyth in the UK and in Sweden, where the Lynn lifting platform was used.
