Lock width:38 metres. Ship width: 37 metres.

How squeezed tolerances soothe the wallet

Money Saved is Money Earned

Utilizing the ultra-precise ADX XR from AD Navigation, makes it possible to squeeze the tolerances.

Passing the Terneuzen locks on the way through the canal towards Gent (Belguim) the pilots are entering the 38 m wide lock with a ship at maximum 37 meter. That leaves only 0.5 m on each side! In this case accuracy and reliability is paramount. Thanks to the ADX technology, limits can be pushed without trading away the safety element.
