Dredging Technologies

September 23 @ 8:00 am - September 27 @ 5:00 pm BST

Why this programme ?

Dredging is a major financial cost for all ports. Moreover if dredging is not done in a proper way, the design depth of the fairway / port infrastructure can not be maintained, limiting the accessibility of the port for deep drafted vessels. In order to control the cost of dredging and allow your port to grow and operate in a sustainable way, it is crucial to understand the different steps of a dredging project. This will allow you to make the right decisions in order to execute  dredging projects safely, efficiently and cost-effectively, with attention to the marine ecosystem and its marine biodiversity.

What ?

Dredging plays a crucial role in coastal and port infrastructure projects and guarantees port access and the navigability of waterways. This seminar on Dredging Technologies gives you an overview of the different steps of a dredging project, including latest innovations and technology, best practices concerning contract arrangements as well as environmental aspects of this topic. Multiple case studies with a focus on Belgium – Europe as well as India – Asia will be given to illustrate the do’s and don’ts of a good dredging project.
