Seminar "Eco-friendly Dredging in the Modern World"


CEDA Members can download the presentations here, you need to SIGN IN first

CEDA has organised this technical seminar together with the Russian State Hydrometeorological University (RSHU) and the St. Petersburg State Polytechnical University (SPbSPU) and in co-operation with the Government of St. Petersburg, Committee for Nature Use, Environmental Protection and Ecological Safety. This two-day seminar provided a forum for the exchange of knowledge and ideas about dredging and marine construction between scientists and practitioners, across disciplines and countries. As in many other parts of the world, the fast growing economy of the Russian Federation generates a high demand on dredging services. Impressive projects in and around St. Petersburg, such as the expansion of the Port, the construction of the Sea Fasad, the Flood Protection Barrier and the Nord stream gas pipeline are true testament to that.
