Royal IHC recently partnered with Stiamak Barunawati and Pelindo III to deliver a dredging seminar in Surabaya, Indonesia.

The aim of the last month’s event was to give an insight into the world of dredging, and encourage contractors and other relevant parties to enter this field by sharing IHC’s diverse market knowledge.

The format of the seminar was designed to be approachable and varied. The program of topics covered several themes, including: government regulations that relate to dredging activities; the need for maintenance dredging from a port perspective; and IHC’s commitment to the Indonesian market, and its desire to strengthen and support the dredging industry throughout Indonesia.

IHC’s professionals presented the latest technology that surrounds dredging equipment, trailing suction hopper dredgers (TSHDs) and cutter suction dredgers (CSDs). In addition, they advised on the selection of equipment based on a range of circumstances required by different projects.

Guest speaker Agussalim Igarashi, Director of PT SKAL, discussed the need for the deepening of rivers in order to achieve lower overall transportation costs for bulk commodities.

Using the water ways as a mode of transport reduces traffic on the roads and has a lower impact on the environment. This type of dredging project results in a win-win situation for all parties involved.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was also signed with Stiamak Barunawati, which is an affiliated company of Pelindo III. This is to further develop these types of training programs and tailor them to more specific target groups within the Pelindo III group of companies.
