Piedroba Consulting Group’s First Executive Dredging Seminar

Piedroba Consulting Group and HR Wallingford teamed up to host an afternoon dredging seminar on June 12th in Miami that discussed adequate risk management throughout all phases of a dredging project. 

In what turned out to be an interactive afternoon, contract owners, engineers and dredging contractors participated in productive discussions regarding adequate risk management and the optimization of risk allocation on dredging projects.

Piedroba’s principal, Dr. Luis Prieto-Portar, was pleased with the participation: “Rarely do you get all these players from different segments of the dredging industry in a room, and talk about how to best perform dredging projects in a neutral and non-project specific way. We even had legal professionals who often handle dredging project related claims partake.

“As a consultant, we often represent contract owners on a dredging project and have discussions with the engineers, contractors and other project professionals.

“We frequently find that these type of interactions stand to benefit from having a better perspective of each other’s position, as well as having a more detailed understanding of what adequate risk management and risk allocation entails across the board. I feel all of us who joined might benefit from this when we work on our next project.”

Companies in attendance included Van Oord, Royal Boskalis, Dredging International, Weeks Marine, AECOM, The Falcon of Doha, Manzanillo International Terminals, Trinidad Dry Dock, MTI Consultants as well as various other industry professionals.
