Central Dredging Association (CEDA) will be the host to a series of webinars on dredging technology this year – with a focus on the Cutter Suction Dredge and the Trailing Suction Hopper Dredge.
The series will offer delegates training, at two different levels, depending on their working knowledge and experience.
Foundation level webinars will provide a sound basis on topics for professionals working in the dredging field.
The practitioner level webinars will serve the more experienced engineers who have been through formal training in the field and have experience with dredging equipment and technology.
The series will start with two foundation-level presentations by Prof. Dr. ir. Cees van Rhee from the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, on the working principles of two workhorses of the industry: the cutter suction dredger and the trailing suction hopper dredger.
The second part of the program will feature practitioner-level presentations which will focus on particular aspects of the two dredgers. These webinars will be primarily for engineers working in the field, who have been through formal training and have experience with dredging equipment and technology.
CEDA Dredging Technology Webinars will kick-off on 12 May 2016 and will continue in September, after the summer break, with a webinar roughly every two weeks.
