Canals and rivers


Canals and rivers are waterways often used for navigational purposes. The main difference between them is that one is man-made and the other one is eroded naturally throughout time. The transportation capacity of the waterway is determined by its depth and width.

As the regions tend to develop their transportation capacity, waterways need to be deepened. This has an impact on the retaining height of both embankments and berthing facilities, but also at the structures needed to regulate the navigation like locks sluices and weirs. Our large range of sheet piles including cold and hot rolled sheet piles enable designers to choose for an optimal and cost-efficient solution.
