PSR Brownfield Developers, the specialist of Jan De Nul Group for redeveloping brownfields, manages the Dac’Art project but also the civil construction division of Jan De Nul and the Environment Division Envisan have a part to play.
“On the southern quay in Izegem, where the animal feed company Dacar used to be, PSR Brownfield Developers is developing a residential area with 61 dwellings. The construction works themselves will be executed by the civil construction division.” says Julie De Pauw, project coordinator since the outset. “The project was launched in 2008 when PSR bought the contaminated site.“
Pieter Vernaillen, environmental expert about the remedation works: “We excavated about 5,000 m³ of soil of which 3,100 m³ was contaminated by heating oil. We discharged this soil to our own treatment centre in Hulsdonk in view of its biological decontamination. The other 1,865 m³ was not contaminated but was also conveyed to Hulsdonk for temporary storage. Subsequently, this soil was re-used by our project team Terranova in Zelzate for the construction of the Terranova Solar Energy Park. This way, we contribute to a more circular economy.”
