Moscow Dredging Congress Kicks Off
The Congress ‘Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging’, organized by Media Group PortNews, kicked off today in Moscow.
“We want to look more broadly at the industry, so we have planned to launch yet another event – a Congress dedicated to all aspects of the construction and operation of hydraulic engineering structures of water transport,” said the organizers.
A major part of Russia’s economy is driven by infrastructure development such as the construction of port facilities and hydraulic engineering structures. Therefore, the two-day program focuses on modern technologies for dredging and hydrotechnical works.
