The International Association of Dredging Companies has announced that their International Seminar on Dredging and Reclamation will be held in Singapore, 17-21 October 2016.
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.
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.
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.
