Monitoring of the amoras underwater cell

ABSTRACT
Since end of 2011 maintenance dredging material from the port of Antwerp is mechanically dewatered by the AMORAS
dewatering installation. Before the dredged material is pumped to the AMORAS site, it is temporally stored in an
underwater storage cell in one of the port shelter-docks, specially constructed for the AMORAS project. The material is
disposed into the underwater cell by split hopper barges. The presented paper investigates the mechanisms of potential
sediment losses from the underwater cell back into the main port navigation channel.
