Strategic Dredging has just announced the launch of a unique course for the dredging industry, the Cutter Suction Dredger Intensive Training.
According to the company, the “CSD Production Intensive” training has been developed to help dredging contractors achieve higher productions.
“Any CSD is worthless if it doesn’t produce. And not only produce, but produce such quantities that they are competitive in the industry. Getting some sludge through the pipe is one thing, but achieving competitive productions, that’s another story. So we developed this training to help contractors achieve those competitive productions,” the company said.
This 5 day intensive training full of interaction, exercises, and case studies is aimed at vessel and site personnel who want to learn how to get the most production out of any CSD.
Topics to be covered include:
- CSD production process;
- Unit rate;
- Gathering process and spill;
- Cutting process;
- Suction process;
- Discharge process;
- Soil and impact on operation;
- DICE production optimization system;
- Basic production calculations;
- Terms like density, concentrations, flow, etc.;
- Exercises for various topics;
- Case studies.
