Deltares: Spotlight on Argentinian New Inland Waterways

Pablo Bereciartúa (Secretary of Water Resources), Erik Mosselman (Deltares), Marc Hasselaar (Dutch Embassy) en Pablo Spaletti (president of INA)

Erik Mosselman, Deltares’ expert for river engineering, morphology and fluvial morphodynamics, visited Buenos Aires recently to kick off a pre-feasibility study on new inland waterways.

This pre-feasibility study assesses current and projected transport of Argentinian products, costs and benefits of new inland waterways, water requirements and availability for new waterways, possible interference of new waterways with natural drainage, and the possibility of using waterways for drainage of waterlogged areas.

Deltares leads a consortium with partners STC-NESTRA and STC-Group Holding BV to study transport economics and hydrology as key components for the pre-feasibility study.

The consortium co-operates with the Argentinian research institute INA.

A study tour to the Netherlands by a broad Argentinian delegation to visit the European system of inland waterways and to meet Dutch experts in the inland waterway transport sector will also be part of the cooperation.

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
