  1. Seine-Nord Europe Canal Central link of the Seine-Scheldt Inland Waterway RTE-T priority projet n°30 Nicolas Bour Directeur Mission Seine-Nord Europe Voies Navigables de France 4 octobre 2010

  2. Plan of the presentation • History and Key decisions of the project • Presentation of the Seine-Nord Europe canal • Issues of the project • Trafic and global benefits • Financing and PPP contract • Partnerships of the project • Questions/answers

  3. Link between basins of Seine and Scheldt towards the 20 000 km of the european large-gauge waterway network

  4. Seine-Scheldt • IN FRANCE : • Seine-Nord Europe canal • Northern extensions : Dunkerque-Scheldt and Deûle canals, Lys, re-opening of the Condé-Pommeroeul canal - Southern extensions : Oise from Compiègne to Conflans-Ste-Honorine IN BELGIUM: • Flanders : Lys and the lower Scheldt • Wallonia : Scheldt and the Walloon ridge.

  9. Seine Nord Europe canal project A canal 106 km long (class Vb) from Compiègne to Aubencheul-au-Bac comprising: • 8 reaches connected by 7 locks (single chamber) with water-saving basins • 2 water storage reservoirs • 3 aqueducts • 4 multimodal platforms and7 loading/unloading quays • 5 boat harbours + moorings for passenger vessels

  10. Images of the future canal

  11. Seine-Scheldt : a multimodal platforms network

  12. Port and logisticszones along the canal • 360 ha of industrial port and logistics zones : 4 platforms • Enhancing the agricultural and industrial potential of the regions • Locating logistics distribution centres • Contributing to volume concentration • Developing intermodality - water-rail-road

  13. Péronne-Haute-Picardie Noyon Nesle

  14. Cambrai-Marquion platform Forecast water transport in 2020 • Bulk: 1.215 Mt • Containers: 30 000 TEU Size of port area: 156 ha • Including 30 ha for a logistics park, 18 ha for an activity park and 52 ha of industrial and logistics land connected to the waterway • A 20 ha multipurpose container terminal Intermodal facilities • 1000 m quay • Rail services 1400 jobs in 2020

  17. A project for french and european economy • Improve competitiveness of european economy • Contribute to economical and indsutrial development of regions and territories • Link important regions of production and goods consumption in north Europe • Embody sustainable development issues in transport policies

  18. A project for the transports network • Eliminate a major bottleneck • Reinforce the european network of transport • Strengthen efficiency of the link between the 7 seaports of the northern range • Develop network of platforms • Restructure the logistical activity in north Europ

  20. Nature of goods transported on SNE Cereals, Agro-industry 21 % Containers, heavy loads, vehicules 25 % Energy products 5 % Steel products 8 % Chemicalsproducts, fertilisers 7% Construction materials 34 %

  21. 10 billions euros of global benefits • 75 % of the economics benefits come from reduction in transport costs, 25 % from reduction of external costs. • These benefits concerne France, Belgium, Netherland and Germany, concentrated in the regions of production and goods consumption. • 25 % of the benefits are concentrated in the 7 seaports of the northern range

  22. Distribution of global benefits

  23. Plan of the presentation • History and Key decisions of the project • Presentation of the Seine-Nord Europe canal • Issues of the project • Trafic and global benefits • Financing and PPP contract • Partnerships of the project • Questions/answers

  24. Project financing prospects • EU under the TEN-T programme : 333 M€ • State : 900 M€ • French local authorities : 900 M€ • Private partners under a public-private partnership contract(decree of 17 June 2004) : 2 100 M€ Total of the financing prospects (euros 2015) 2 400 M€

  25. Eligibility and relevance of a partnership contract • Favorable opinion given by the PPP Contract support Unit in october 200 • Reduction of construction time and risks • Public funding requirement reduced • Project enhanced through the “competitive dialogue” with private candidates

  26. Technical and financial optimisation Distribute risks in advance among the public and private partners : • intergrate design, construction, operation, maintenance and renewal to overall optimisation of the project in the long term and respect costs and lead times • ensure that water supply, transfer and flood control issues are tackled efficiently • include initiatives of the private sector partners for the development of side activities, • obtain higher performance levels thanks to the mechanisms of profit incentive for the private-sector partner.

  27. Tolls Important economics benefits, due to reduction in transport costs, permit to take tolls, and to preserve the competitiveness of the mode, in comparaison to raod and rail.
