Young CEDA to visit IHC in October this year

In an informal meeting on 18 August Dutch members of the Young CEDA Board came together to plan the next Young CEDA event, a visit to IHC in the second half of October.

The visit to the shipyard is timed to see the new jumbo CSD IHC is building for Boskalis and the two dual engine TSHDs built for DEME.

All three of these dredging vessels will be trendsetting in their class in the industry. Young CEDA will grab this unique opportunity to organise an afternoon excursion to IHC’s shipyards and to give its members – students and young professionals – the opportunity to learn about IHC and to hear about, and most of all see these new vessels. As customary, there will be plenty opportunity to network and to have fun with other young professionals in the dredging industry.

The excursion will take place on 20 October. Keep an eye on the Young CEDA newsletter and the CEDA website for the announcement and registrtion information as places for this excursion will be limited.


Dutch members of the Young CEDA Board during the recent meeting where fine-tuned the plans for the October visit (l to r): Arjan de Heer (Witteveen + Bos), Roderik Hoekstra (Deltares), Jort van Wijk (IHC), Peter de Looze (HAL Maritiem) and Jaco den Hoed (IHC).
