ADBP to Present “Maximising Return from Sub Sea Assets“

Anthony D Bates Partnership LLP (ADBP) has announced that they will make a presentation at the 9th International Conference on Ports and Terminal Technology being held in Amsterdam on the 27th November 2013.

This presentation investigates the following aspects with regard to maximising cargos and the cost benefits associated with each:

– Review of current and future vessel size in relation to berth pocket design and channel definition to maximise cargoes

There have been significant changes in vessel design over the years but very rarely is a review carried out to see if the existing subsea facility actually corresponds to the specific parameters of the port’s trade vessels. Undertaking a review process can potentially elongate the durations between dredging campaigns, reducing maintenance costs while not impacting on safety.

– Regular, accurate and reliable bathymetric survey information

The cost of hydrographic surveys is often seen as an unnecessary expense, yet the information gathered can easily pay significant dividends if used in an appropriate manner.

The potential risk associated with safe navigation can also be minimised.

– Forward prediction of dredging requirements and associated budget provision

By utilising reliable survey information, in the correct manner, accurate sedimentation rates can be generated and modelled to predict the optimum time for dredging. By establishing the volume of material to be removed a reliable budget estimate can be set 1, 2, 3 years in advance and potentially allow collaboration with other local projects to reduce costs.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews ( holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
