Delft Hosts Five-Day Dredging Course

The International Association of Dredging Companies’ (IADC) Seminar on Dredging and Land Reclamation will be held from Monday, 20 June, through Friday, 24 June, 2016 at UNESCO-IHE, Delft, the Netherlands. 

This five-day course strives to provide an understanding through lectures by experts in the field and workshops, partly conducted on-site in order to give the “students” hands-on experience.

To optimize the chances of the successful completion of a project, contracting parties should, from the start, fully understand the requirements of a dredging project, and this event will help in achieving this goal.

The seminar will cover a wide range of subjects:

  • overview of the dredging market and the development of new ports and maintenance of existing ports;
  • project phasing (identification, investigation, feasibility studies, design, construction and maintenance);
  • descriptions of types of dredging equipment and boundary conditions for their use;
  • state-of-the-art dredging and reclamation techniques including environmental measures;
  • site and soil investigations, designing and estimating from the contractor’s view;
  • costing of projects and types of contracts such as charter, unit rates, lump sum, risk-sharing agreements and early contractor involvement;
  • survey: progress measurement of dredging and reclamation works.

Site Visit

An important feature of the IADC Seminars is a trip to visit a dredging project being executed in the given geographical area.

This gives the participants the opportunity to see dredging equipment in action and to gain a better feeling of the extent of a dredging activity.
