Damen Shipyards Group will hold its first African Dredging Seminar on 23rd November at Damen Shipyards Cape Town.
The seminar will be attended by personnel from Damen and its suppliers as well as representative of the South African Government and TNPA. The seminar is open to all with an interest in the dredging industry, the company said.
During the event, a number of presentations will consider the importance of dredging in Africa, looking at a number of past, present and future projects covering both maintenance and capital dredging. There will also be a demonstration of a Damen submersible DOP/dredging Pump 150.
Damen colleagues will deliver presentations covering the equipment provided by Damen Dredging Equipment (DDE) and the Damen Dredging Product Group, the financing arrangements available from Damen Finance and the after-sales care provided by Damen Services.
Benny Bhali, head of sales at Damen Shipyards Cape Town, said: “We are very excited and looking forward to this event. Dredging has enormous potential to open up additional trading opportunities in Africa. This will be a great chance for stakeholders to discuss the opportunities with a range of experts. I would encourage anyone with an interest in the sector to attend this event.”
