Improvements in science and technology are opening up opportunities for operational efficiencies, enhanced data capture and visualisation, new energy sources and storage, and more across all sectors.  CEDA UK’s Autumn Technical Seminar will consider how this ‘technological transformation’ is affecting dredging projects.  Presentations from experts representing vessel manufacturers, dredging contractors and monitoring specialists will focus on both the changes and improvements happening (and planned) on dredging vessels as well as how science and technology is improving the monitoring of dredging projects.

Nick Elderfield, DHI UK: Using real-time environmental monitoring to manage dredging projects
