    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 dumped into the underwater cell by split hopper barges. The presented paper investigates the mechanisms of potential sludge spill from the underwater cell back into the main port navigation channel.
