7 April 2014

The Training Course "Environmental Aspects of Dredging" jointly developed by CEDA and IADC will next be presented at HR Wallingford, Wallingford, Oxfordshire, UK on 18-19 June 2014.

The course is intensive, compacted into two very full days, composed of lectures and working group sessions. Topics covered include:

  • an overview of the "players" who may become involved in dredging projects and their perspectives;
  • main types of dredging equipment, their environmental effects and possible mitigation measures;
  • pre-dredging site investigations, monitoring and dredged material management; and
  • workshops where participants are split into small groups to find solutions for dredging projects closely resembling real-life dredging situations.

The training course is aimed at:

  • consultants and contractors in dredging related industries;
  • professionals from different governmental bodies, whether municipalities, district water boards, ports and harbour
  • authorities or central government.
