Abstract
    In the Port of Antwerp an amount of approximately 600,000 tonnes dry matter of harbour sediments need to be dredged every year. Until the present day the sediments have been disposed of on several containment sites on land or in underwater disposal cells. Since the present disposal capacity is insufficient and no expansion is possible due to the lack of space, the Flemish Government administration in association with the Port of Antwerp Authority have planned to construct an installation for mechanical dewatering of these sediments, using the dewatering technique with membrane filter presses.
