The program, which lasted from 8 – 12 June 2015, included both theoretical course and simulator training, a visit to the sea port and to a dredging vessel in work.

The training included various questions on dredging works planning and organization, crewing and maintenance of the dredging fleet, survey works and calculation of the scope of work, environmental aspects, preparation of cost estimates and a project plan. The parties exchanged their opinion on the most vital problems arising during construction and scooping.

The practical part of the training consisted of exercises on modern simulators that simulate operation of a cutter-suction dredger, a trailing suction hopper dredger and a backhoe dredger.

Besides, a tour has been organized to view “Maasvlakte 2”, the artificial territory of the port of Rotterdam, formed with the direct involvement of Van Oord company, and a visit to Volvox Olympia trailing-suction hopper dredger operating on the project.
