“I look forward to partner and co-operate with all DMC’s stakeholders to serve our industry and take our responsibility in facilitating and improving management of dredging works,” said de Kok.

“We all feel the need to contribute to both the climate adaptation and energy transition challenges – these challenges are present in most of our dredging works.”

The DMC fulfils the need to initiate and facilitate discussions, innovations and questions from the dredging community on the management of dredging works in the broadest sense.

According to CEDA, it aims to bring together all stakeholders related to dredging works, to be the discussion platform, the focal point of contact and the initiator of knowledge development for topics related to dredged management, and by doing that, lead to mutually beneficial improvements and solutions for all involved.
