Next IADC International Seminar On Dredging & Reclamation

Next IADC International Seminar On Dredging & Reclamation

12 Apr 2017

To optimise the chances of the successful completion of a dredging or reclamation project, all contracting parties should – from the start – fully understand the requirements of the project. With this mission in mind, the International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) launched its now well- known seminar over 20 years ago in 1993.

This year, for the 55th time, the IADC is presenting this highly informative seminar on Dredging and Land Reclamation in cooperation with the IHE Delft Institute for Water Education.

As a recent seminar participant remarked: “For the client, the IADC seminar is the best opportunity ever to start to understand what a dredging work is. After the seminar you can see what is possible and what is not.”


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 phasing;
  • descriptions of types of dredging equipment;
  • costing of projects; and
  • types of dredging projects.



Activities outside the classroom are equally as important. An on-site visit to the dredging yard of IADC member Van Oord is therefore an integral element in the learning process.


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.


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


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.

Please note that the Seminar starts on Monday 26th June at 8:45 hrs and ends Friday 30th June at 17:00 hrs. Full attendance is required for attaining the Certificate of Achievement.
