Egis, the lead contractor in the One consortium of Ingérop, ISL, SBE, MDP et NEY & Partners, has been awarded the comprehensive programme management contract for the two main sectors of the iconic Seine-Nord Europe Canal. This project will connect the basins of rivers Seine and Oise with the 20,000 km high-capacity north European waterway network, thanks to a canal stretching 107 km from Compiègne Oise department to Aubencheul-au-Bac Nord department. Egis and its partners will be responsible for the comprehensive engineering, procurement and construction management EPCM of sectors 2 and 4 respectively 48 and 38 km of the route including the construction of many highly technical works and structures.

The Seine-Nord Europe Canal is a central link in the Seine-Escaut high-capacity European waterway corridor. By connecting up the Seine and Oise basins with the north European high-capacity waterway network, it will enable the transportation and consignment of river freight and generate modal shift from road to waterway. This will lead to the substantial decongestion of the French A1 motorway and significant reductions in carbon dioxide emissions. By way of example, a high-capacity barge can carry up to 4,400 tonnes of goods, representing the equivalent of 220 heavy goods vehicles.

Egis and its partners will manage the project for nine years, from design studies through to construction supervision and commissioning, on the two main sectors of the Seine-Nord Europe Canal:
Sector 2, 48 km in length running from Passel to Allaines
Sector 4, 28 km in length running from Etricourt-Manancourt to Aubencheul-au-Bac
