The course goal is to explain the participant how to successfully create new port infrastructure and/or maintain port access using the best available dredging technologies and strategies. After a review of the most common dredging techniques and their application the different aspects of a typical dredging project (including the preparation, execution as well as follow-up of dredging works) will be explained using real life case studies from all over the world. Successful projects as well as projects which faced large problems will be used throughout the seminar to illustrate the do’s and don’ts of a dredging project.
