There is always a lot of activity on our Flemish coasts and the River Scheldt with the Coastal Division. This work of the division can be divided into 3 parts:

  1. Sea Defence & Coastal Management
  2. Coastal Marinas
  3. Flemish Hydrography

Welcome to the working area of the Coastal Division.

Storm Surge Barrier Nieuwpoort

To protect Nieuwpoort and surroundings against heavyl storm surges, a storm surge barrier is currently being built on the mouth of the Yser.

In our Oceanographic Meteorological Station we produce an exclusive weather forecast for the sea and coast, which is disseminated not only to professional users such as port authorities and shipping professionals, but also to the general public.
