Engineering a mindset: trends in dredging technology

Register to listen to the on-demand webinar

Dredging is not just about working with complex technology, but is also about an active approach to problem solving. Whether there are environmental considerations, regulatory constraints or various stakeholder expectations to be managed, marine engineering requires a holistic approach to tackling a project.

This joint webinar between CEDA and IHS Markit features four speakers who explore this holistic approach through a discussion of global dredging and engineering market trends as well as real world projects as presented in their papers from CEDA’s Dredging Days 2017.

DPC editor Ines Nastali sets the scene with exclusive IHS Markit data about capacity trends in current global dredger fleet as featured in the International Dredging Directory (IDD) 2019. These include the latest stats on cutting power and hopper capacities, and opportunities for these vessels in new and established markets.

CEDA members Liesbeth de Keukelaere, Vito, John Kirkpatrick, HR Wallingford, Luca Sittoni, EcoShape, delve into topics such as engineering in harmony with nature, the best uses of new technology such as drones and how to handle contractor, client, and public expectations.

You can listen to this webinar on demand at a time that suits you and you will be able to send questions to IHS Markit via e-mail. Click here to register for and listen to the webinar.
