The Symposium was organised by the Central Dredging Association (CEDA) and the Marine Institute in Gdansk (MIG) and is supported by the Gdansk Science and Technology Park (GSTP) and the Baltic Ports Organisation (BPO). The aim of the event was knowledge exchange between international and local experts on high-interest topics for senior members of the professional dredging community.

The finalised one-day programme:

  • Drew on the collective knowledge and experience of CEDA’s Environment Commission and Dredging Management Commission to provide the latest details on their work including: beneficial use of sediments; energy efficiency of dredging projects, dredging technology developments versus requirements; how to avoid project booby traps; and more;
  • Included presentations from local speakers representing MIG, GSTP and BPO and covered the latest on placing dredged sediment in the Baltic Sea; and an update on GSTP projects;
  • Included a site visit to Port of Gdansk and a brainstorming session followed by a Symposium dinner.

It was a full day of updates, current thinking and best practice, with plenty of opportunities to network with fellow senior professionals.
