Voorburg, The Netherlands, 23 January 2019 - For (future) decision makers and their advisors in governments, port and harbour authorities, off-shore companies and other organisations that have to execute dredging projects, the International Association of Dredging Companies organises the International Seminar on Dredging and Reclamation for the 57th time. This time the seminar will be held from 24 – 28 June 2019 at, and in cooperation with the IHE Delft Institute for Water Education, in Delft, The Netherlands.

The in-depth lectures are given by dredging experts from IADC member companies, whose practical knowledge and experience add an extra value to the classroom lessons. Amongst the subjects covered are:

  • the development of new ports and maintenance of existing ports
  • project development: from preparation to realisation
  • descriptions of types of dredging equipment
  • costing of projects
  • types of dredging projects
  • environmental aspects of dredging

Activities outside the classroom are equally as important. An on-site visit to the dredging yard of a IADC member is therefore an integral element in the learning process. This gives the participants the opportunity to see dredging equipment in action and to gain a better feeling of the extent of a dredging activity.

Face-to-face social contact is invaluable. A mid-week dinner where participants, lecturers and other dredging employees can interact, network and discuss the real, hands-on world of dredging provide another dimension to this stimulating week.

Each participant will receive a set of comprehensive proceedings and at the end of the week, a Certificate of Achievement in recognition of the completion of the coursework. Full attendance is required for attaining the Certificate of Achievement.

The fee for the week-long Seminar is € 3,100.- (VAT inclusive). This includes all tuition, proceedings, workshops and a special participants’ dinner, but excludes travel costs and accommodation. Assistance with finding hotel accommodation can be given.

Since 1993 IADC has provided on a regular base, a week-long seminar especially developed for professionals in dredging-related industries. These intensive courses have been successfully presented in The Netherlands, Singapore, Dubai, Argentina, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Brazil. With this seminars IADC reflects its commitment to education, to encouraging young people to enter the field of dredging, and to improving knowledge about dredging throughout the world.
