The Central Dredging Association (CEDA) has just released its CEDA Annual Report 2016, detailing their work over the previous year and highlighting work related to the new initiatives.
“2016 was an interesting year, in many ways, and for CEDA it was an outstandingly positive one with a few ‘firsts’. We established the Dredging Management Commission, made a huge contribution to WODCON XXI, and ran a series of foundation and practitioner-level webinars,” said Polite Laboyrie, the CEDA President.
“We were invited to add specialist input to the revised Spanish Dredged Material Guidelines and raised our profile further in the Iberian region with our first Iberian Conference in Lisbon. Plus, we ended the year participating in the kick-off meeting of an EU-funded pilot project that will see an MGO dredger converted to LNG/ MGO dual fuel.”
CEDA is part of the World Organisation of Dredging Associations (WODA) and is responsible for Europe, Africa and the Middle East. CEDA’s two sister associations, WEDA (Western Dredging Association) and EADA (Eastern Dredging Association), serve the Americas, and Asia, Australia and the Pacific region respectively.
