The Netherlands: TID’s Beaver Engineer Training Set for June

TID’s Beaver Engineer Training Set for June

From June 10 through 21, 2013, TID’s annual Beaver Engineer Training will take place at TID’s training facilities in the Netherlands.

This two-week training programme is aimed at (future) crew of IHC Beaver dredgers, IHC Merwede’s range of durable and highly efficient standardised cutter dredgers of which over 700 have been supplied worldwide.

High efficiency, however, is not only achieved by purchasing an efficient dredger; a dedicated and well-trained crew is of vital importance to fully benefit from the production potential offered by a Beaver Dredger, or any dredger for that matter.

The Beaver Engineer Training is designed for personnel tasked with maintaining and troubleshooting of the various systems on board of a Beaver dredger, thus keeping downtime and waste to a minimum. Accordingly, the target audience for this training consists of roughly three groups:

◦All-round operational personnel maintaining and repairing all systems on board of an IHC Beaver Dredger on a daily basis;

◦Mechanical engineers;

◦Electrical engineers.

The training covers a broad range of topics, such as maintenance schedules, docking, engines and electrical systems, dredge instrumentations and troubleshooting. Topics apply to both Classic and New Generation Beaver series, differences between which will also be discussed.

At the end of the training, participants will have improved their understanding of governing aspects in safety, design, and maintenance and repair aspects of a Beaver Dredger. Ultimately, they are able to troubleshoot and maintain their Beaver dredger within their area of expertise in a substantially more efficient and safer way. This in-depth training course on the equipment will allow participants to improve dredging maintenance operations in both a technical and an economical way.

An interesting and balanced combination of presentations, discussions and workshops makes for optimal engagement, while allowing ample time for participants and lecturers to discuss actual challenges from the field. The training is led by experts from TID, IHC Merwede and Pon Power with a thorough knowledge of cutter equipment.
