Looking to the future

26 October 2016

October, was another busy month for Young CEDA. On Thursday 20th, board members joined 25 students and young professionals at an event, specially-organised by Royal IHC, to give them an insight into dredging and marine construction.

Introductory presentations were followed by a guided tour at the IHC yard, which included an extensive on-site preview of the self-propelled megacutter Helios (scheduled for delivery in 2017). The group was also treated to a tour of the company’s shipyard, in Kinderdijk, and the chance to observe a LNG hopper on the slipway. A fantastically full day ended with networking, and drinks, and for many people it was their first time aboard a dredging vessel.

Young CEDA would like to thank Royal IHC for hosting the event.
