Preserving a Shipwreck (The Cog) by using deionized water


How does Flanders Heritage Agency go about getting it to look like it did before it spent 7 centuries underwater?

The cog discovery – a brief history.

In 2000 a shipwreck was found in the Deurganckdock in the Antwerp harbour (Belgium) - During excavation works - which was identified as a cog and dated to 1325. Every fragment of wood is tagged with a unique code and stored in containers filled with tap water.

The collaboration with Induss enables us to reduce our carbon footprint. Transparency in our partnership is also the key for better cost control of water and steam.

Thanks to Induss’ full examination and mapping of my various water needs, I now receive guaranteed quality and secured delivery of industrial water for my production line and that at a fixed price for a full contract length.
