Testimonials

Frederic Vandeputte

Project Manager De Nieuwe Dokken (Caaap en Van Roey Vastgoed)

De Nieuwe Dokken have allowed us to push the boundaries of sustainable living and define new standards.

De Nieuwe Dokken is a brownfield development of more than 400 homes and related functions, including offices and catering, where we use energy and heat very efficiently. Investors were sought and found to work with us through an ESCO to finance the capex of these innovative sustainable techniques and to earn them back in the long term through the sale of heat to the residents in the district.

This ESCO (www.DuCoop.be) monitors the long-term exploitation and interactively involves the users in all facets of sustainability in the new residential area.

This has allowed us to push the boundaries of sustainable living and define new standards.

From SoGent, the urban development company of the city of Ghent, we invite real estate developers to place sustainability high on the agenda in new construction and renovation.

In De Nieuwe Dokken in Ghent, circular living is becoming a reality: reuse of locally treated waste water, residual heat from waste water and industry, biogas production from toilet water and kitchen waste, electric mobility from locally generated solar power.

All these applications, developed by DuCoop in the context of the De Nieuwe Dokken project contributes to the climate objectives of the city of Ghent and sogent.

We were looking for an environmentally friendly home anyway, but in our new residential area, the sustainability exceeds our imagination.

Living in De Nieuwe Dokken in Ghent has been an eye-opener for us.
We were looking for an environmentally friendly home anyway, but in our new residential area, the sustainability exceeds our imagination.

Emission-free heating with residual heat, solar energy for the techniques and mobility, integral reuse of the district’s waste water, drastic savings on water consumption by vacuum toilet.

This type of innovative interventions really give us the feeling that a difference is made.
