CEDA Dredging Event to Take Place in Cardiff

The Central Dredging Association (CEDA) has announced that they seminar ‘Dredging in Wales, A Review and Forward Look’,  co-promoted by the ICE Wales Region, will take place on Tuesday, 9 May 2017, at Novotel Cardiff Center, Cardiff.

“CEDA are holding their spring seminar in Wales and have brought together a distinguished panel of speakers to make presentations on behalf of marinas, ports, regulators and developers with regard to dredging and its related topics,” the official release said.

The presentations will primarily be Wales specific, but will be informative for anyone with links to the dredging industry, CEDA said.

“With the ports and harbors of Wales playing a vital role in the country’s economy through imports, exports, offshore energy, fishing and recreation, the creation and maintenance of navigation depths and channels is of fundamental importance,” the organizers stated.
