National Dredging Museum hosts engineering lecture

A lecture about the wonder world of dredging, civil engineering of waterway construction and architecture is set to take place on October 23.

On that Saturday, Mr. Remco van der Ven, in cooperation with Mr. Bas de Goeij, will lead the discussion on these items in the National Dredging Museum in the Netherlands.

Dredging is much more than taking sand to the surface. It is a whole world of waterways construction and civil engineering.

Over the whole world, dredging companies have completed very big projects like the “Chek Lap Kok” airport in Hong Kong, the “Palm Islands” at Dubai, the expansion of the “Suez Canal”, the making of the “Europort”, the “Maasvlakte 1” and “Maasvlakte 2” in the Rotterdam Area, etc.

The lecture, scheduled to start at 12:00 hrs, will be about the dredging industry in the past, present and future, accompanied with a lot of photo and video material.
