The International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) has just published the latest edition of their Terra et Aqua magazine.

The new Terra et Aqua shines a spotlight on the dredging industry through three new articles about sliding slurry, a prevention checklist, sustainability advocate and value creator.

Which slurry transport regime should be used and why? Sape Miedema, Director of Studies of the MSc Offshore & Dredging Engineering & Marine Technology at TU Delft, selects one from five possible flow regimes thanks to its simple criterion: a ratio of the particle diameter to the pipe diameter,” said IADC.

A checklist of recurring issues extracted from the project experiences of industry professionals was prepared by the Dredging Management Commission (DMC) – a commission organised by CEDA – with the aim of successful dredging management by preventing these problems in future projects.

Author Kathleen De Wit, Chair of the DMC and Principal Engineer at IMDC, explains the evolving checklist’s aim to continue growing the list of issues to one day eliminate them.

In this edition, IADC speaks with Mark van Koningsveld – Professor Ports & Waterways at TU Delft – as he begins his new role as Professor Ports & Waterways at TU Delft and continues his quest for a sustainable dredging industry.

“What value does a marine contractor create for its stakeholders? Authors Sander Dekker, Sustainability Manager at Van Oord, and Bernd Hendriksen, Managing Partner at KPMG Sustainability, discuss externalities which traditionally fall beyond the scope of contractors, leading to stakeholder value creation and corporate value creation being viewed as separate concepts,” said IADC.

The article discusses how to internalize externalities as a force of corporate value creation.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

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.
