The International Association of Dredging Companies’ (IADC) Seminar on Dredging and Land Reclamation is set to take place from Monday, 26 June, through Friday, 30 June, 2017, at UNESCO-IHE, Delft, the Netherlands.

To optimize the chances of the successful completion of a dredging or reclamation project, all contracting parties should – from the start – fully understand the requirements of the project. With this mission in mind, the International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) launched its now well- known seminar over 20 years ago in 1993.

“This year, for the 55th time, IADC is presenting this highly informative seminar on Dredging and Land Reclamation in cooperation with the IHE Delft Institute for Water Education,” the organizers stated.

As a recent seminar participant remarked: “For the client, the IADC seminar is the best opportunity ever to start to understand what a dredging work is. After the seminar you can see what is possible and what is not.”

In the classroom

The in-depth lectures are given by dredging experts from IADC member companies, whose practical knowledge and experience add an extra value to the classroom lessons.

Amongst the subjects covered are:

  • the development of new ports and maintenance of existing ports;
  • project phasing;
  • descriptions of types of dredging equipment;
  • costing of projects;
  • types of dredging projects.

Activities outside the classroom are equally as important, IADC said. An on-site visit to the dredging yard of IADC member Van Oord is therefore an integral element in the learning process.
