CEDA: Environmental Aspects of Dredging Now in Russian Language

The CEDA – IADC book Environmental Aspects of Dredging (Ed. Nick Bray) published by Taylor & Francis in 2008 is now available in Russian language.

The idea to translate the book emerged during the seminar ‘Eco-friendly Dredging in the Modern World’ that took place in 2009 in St. Petersburg, Russia. The seminar was organized in co-operation by CEDA and the Russian State Hydrometeorological University (RSHU) and marked the start of a fruitful and close the co-operation between the two organisations, resulting in a number of successful joint undertakings since.

The main text was translated by a professional sociologist, a specialist in environmental conflicts Maria Kotshergina. General academic editing of the translation was carried out by the professor of RSHU and SPbSPU, Doctor of Science in Geography Mikhail Shilin. During the editing process in 2011 several chapters of the book were reviwed by a range of Russian experts. On behalf of CEDA Dr Stanislav Stanislav Verichev of IHC Merwede has reviwed the text.

In view of the significantrole of dredging in a large number of planned or ongoing projects in the area of St. Petersburg and in other parts of Russia the book is expected to be an essential source of knowledge and best practice for a great number of Russian professionals. In the St. Petersburg area alone as part of the “General scheme of development of transport-technological port complexes in the Finnish Gulf”, new construction or modernization of old port complexes are planned at Vyborg, Vysotsk, Primorsk (northern coast), Lomonosov, Ust-Luga, and Batareynaya bay (southern coast).

The program of working-out of general scheme of development of St.-Petersburg transport connection point foresees the construction of outside harbors in the area of Bronka-Lomonosov and on the Kotlin island. These projects will involve large-scale dredging and reclamation works.

The book is also meant to be used as handbook by the Master Programme “Applied Marine Ecology” of RSHU within the framework of the TEMPUS – eMaris project. The publication of the Russian edition has been made possible with financial support of the project.
