Canal Seine - Nord Europe, France

Ports & Waterways Technical Advisory
Seine Canal

The Canal Seine-Nord Europe is a 106km canal which provides wide-gauge connections between the Oise and the existing Dunkerque-Escaut canal. Through a series of major locks, the waterway will link the River Seine to the ports of Dunkerque, Antwerp and Rotterdam, and to the rest of Northern Europe’s waterways.

Estimated at €5 billion in real terms, this project is the largest ever to be developed under the French PPP scheme.
