“Dredging without Boundaries” Set for November

Dredging without Boundaries

The CEDA African Section will be hosting an international symposium “Dredging without Boundaries” on 27-28 November 2014, in Casablanca, Morocco.

Dredging works have an important role in the construction and maintenance of port infrastructure in the world and particularly on the North African coast. Dredging projects are based around the three key parameters of environment, technology and finance.

While this focus is universal, regardless of the region, the level of importance will vary depending on local conditions and the interests of the various stakeholders in the field of dredging.

In recognition of this, Dredging without Boundaries will bring together researchers and professionals from industry, academia and the governments of Europe and Africa, to promote an exchange of knowledge and experience in the field.

Symposium topics

The symposium will aim to present a varied and comprehensive program covering key topics including: Legislation and regulations; Economic aspects of dredging; Dredging contracts of initial establishment and maintenance; Bathymetric; Oceanographic and hydraulics; Geotechnical influence on the design and costs of dredging programs and delivery; Impact on the environment (effect of dredging on various species present and future land use); Mining and beaches nourishment; Good use of dredged materials (alternative solutions for controlling the operation of a valuable natural source – the sand); Education and training.

A full program of events will also include a technical visit to the Port of Casablanca, and a social program including a conference dinner.

The official languages of the symposium will be French and English.
