The Sigmaplan has two objectives: making the region of the Scheldt estuary safer by a better flood protection and making the ecosystem of the Scheldt robust.

The Sigmaplan consists of different project areas, distributed across a large part of Flanders. Keeping the overview is important but sometimes difficult as each project at customers’ site has its own project leader.

Within Tractebel there’s one single point (SPOC) of contact who’s involved in all different projects. This SPOC acts as procedure and authorisation manager and as process manager. The experience and lessons learnt from previous projects is passed on to future projects. This approach assures a smooth process without time delays due to procedural issues.
