The course goal is to teach the participant how to successfully create new port infrastructure and/or to maintain port access using the best available dredging technologies and strategies. The most common dredging techniques and their application to the different aspects of a typical dredging project (including the preparation, execution as well as follow-up of dredging works) will be explained. Afterwards, the participants will be introduced to real life case studies from all over the world. Successful projects, as well as projects which were faced with larger problems, will be used throughout the seminar to illustrate the do’s and don’ts of a dredging project.
After the seminar, the participant will have acquired the following skills and knowledge: being able to work out an optimal dredging strategy for a specific project, taking into account the local geotechnical conditions and environmental legislation, as well as timing constraints.
What to expect:
An overview of modern dredging techniques and their application; learning how to prepare a dredging project from idea to execution; deciding what is the most appropriate dredging contract. In addition, the basic principles of sedimentation (why do we need to dredge?) will be taught in order to work out an optimal dredging strategy.
Who should attend:
Port authorities, Port consultants, all those managing contractors, Senior management and planning department.
