Aertssen excavated the dry zone between the old and the new quay wall from +6 to -12.5 metres. Our pontoon Yggdrasil was used for this purpose. ‘Daddy Grizzly’, our 270-tonne excavator, was specially fitted out for the job: a Hitachi EX 1900-6 mining excavator with a lifting capacity of 31 tonnes. The work at Antwerp Canal Dock B2 started early of April and was finished by the end of September.
