Today June 10 the Lock Kieldrecht, largest lock in the world, has been officially inaugurated by His Majesty the King Filip of Belgium. The lock is 500m long, 68m wide and almost 18m deep. It is one of the largest Flemish infrastructure projects in recent years. It ensures optimal access to the dock complex on the left bank area in the Port of Antwerp. Thanks to the new lock, companies and activities at this side of the harbor can keep growing and Antwerp can strengthen its position as mainport in Europe.

Herbosch-Kiere is proud to be part of the group of contractors that made this lock possible.
