Following the Building with Nature concept, a pilot study was conducted introducing finegrained dredged sediments as a semicontinuous source of mud into a shallow tidal channel, naturally dispersing sediment to nearby mudflats and salt marshes.
In collaboration with the Natuurmonumenten (the Dutch Society for the Preservation of Nature), Boskalis constructed the Marker Wadden. The archipelago situated within the Markermeer enables processes which revitalise the natural ecology.
To take well-founded financial decisions, help manage risks and reduce uncertainty, a model for calculating the probabilistic assessment of maintenance dredging volumes was developed using the Olokola LNG project near Lagos, Nigeria, as an example.
In the contract of 1954 between the German Federal Waterways Administration and the newly formed Water and Land Federation Emden-Riepe, the Federation relinquished agricultural land within the Emden-Riepe Lowland to the Association of Port Operators to accommodate sediment from the Port of Emd.
Studies reveal some interesting and surprising features about circulation and the fluid mud layer in an important harbour area.
Cement and Soft Mud Mixing Technique Using Compressed Air-Mixture Pipeline: Efficient Solidification
The 1998 IADC Award-winning paper, presented at the WODCON XV in Las Vegas, explains an efficient new technique being utilised in Japan.
