Between the beautiful historic station building and the neo-gothic St.Peter and Paul church in Ostend lies the Mercator Lock. Tis lock is the only access to the mercator dock and guards the water level over there.
The lock keeper had noticed that the water level in the Mercator dock was slowly dropping and suspected a leak through one of the lock doors.
Our diver Jonathan meticulously examined each lock door and indeed… he found a gap through which the water was leaking. With a steel plate and sealant, the problem was solved in less than 5 hours. The owners can be sure there will be enough water for their yachts.
