HR Wallingford will be the organizer of a two-day course which is aimed to provide an overview of the environmental aspects of dredging, the latest technology and equipment that apply to dredging and the management of dredged material.
The event is set to take place on 12-13 December 2018 Howbery Park, Wallingford, UK.
Dredging is often a key part of coastal infrastructure projects. It is central to the delivery of construction aggregates to the UK and in maintaining the navigability of the waterways, estuaries, ports and harbors.
The global dredging market is worth approximately £8 billion per annum. Dredging is a highly specialist discipline and not one which is typically covered in UK Civil Engineering (or similar) degree courses, reported HR Wallingford.
According to the company, this course is designed to provide an introduction to the subject of dredging and will assist those who are responsible for commissioning and managing dredging contractors and those who regulate dredging.
The course will enable attendees to manage and regulate dredging projects and contractors more effectively and efficiently.
