Ecluse

‘ECLUSE’, French for ‘sluice’, was chosen as the name for the Waasland Port heating network because the steam will be sluiced from the Indaver and SLECO waste-to-energy plant to companies in the port. This ambitious, super-strategic project will make the energy supply in the Waasland Port more sustainable and anchor industry in this region.
