CEDA UK Spring Seminar Starts Next Month

Central Dredging Association (CEDA) will hold their spring seminar, named Overcoming the Challenges of Dredging in Scotland, on Tuesday, 12th May 2015, in Glasgow.

With the ports and harbors of Scotland playing a vital role in the country’s economy through imports, exports, offshore energy and fishing, the creation and maintenance of waterways is of fundamental importance.
