‘ECLUSE’, French for ‘sluice’, was chosen as the name for the Waasland Port heating network because the steam is sluiced from the Indaver and SLECO waste-to-energy plant to companies in the port. This ambitious, super-strategic project makes the energy supply in the Waasland Port more sustainable and anchors industry in this region.
Maatschappij Linkerscheldeoever is responsible for the management and land development policy for Waasland Port. As the owner of the land in the Waasland Port for which it grants concessions to the companies located there, MLSO is a valued partner that supports this project and can guarantee its continued existence in the longer term. Essenscia, the Belgian Federation for Chemistry and Life Sciences Industries, also supports this green heat project which helps the chemical industry in Waasland Port to become more sustainable.
