For (future) decision makers and their advisors in governments, port and harbour authorities, off-shore companies and other organisations that have to execute dredging projects, the International Association of Dredging Companies organises the International Seminar on Dredging and Reclamation.
The IADC Seminar will be held from Monday 21 October through Friday 25 October 2013 at Grand Park City Hall hotel, 10 Coleman Street, Singapore.
Since 1993 IADC, often in co-operation with local technical universities, has provided a week-long Seminar especially developed for professionals in dredging-related industries. These intensive courses have been successfully presented in Delft, Singapore, Dubai, Buenos Aires, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Brazil. As is appropriate to a dynamic industry, the Seminar programme is continually updated. In addition to basic dredging methods, new equipment and state-of-the-art techniques are explained.
The Seminars reflect IADC’s commitment to education, to encouraging young people to enter the field of dredging, and to improving knowledge about dredging throughout the world.
The seminar in brief
To optimise the chances of the successful completion of a project, contracting parties should, from the start, fully understand the requirements of a dredging project. This five-day course strives to provide an understanding through lectures by experts in the field and workshops, partly conducted on-site in order to give the “students” hands-on experience.
