The International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) is hosting their Seminar on Dredging and Land Reclamation this week in Delft, the Netherlands (June 26-30).
During the seminar, participants from all over the world will learn the basics of dredging in five days.
Yesterday, the participants of the IADC seminar visited the Van Oord yard in Moerdijk. They were lucky enough to see both the cable-laying vessel Nexus and the cutter suction dredger Artemis, IADC said in its latest announcement.
