CEDA African Section Dredging Days

The African Section of the Central Dredging Association (CEDA) will organise its second international Dredging Days, in Tangiers, Morocco on the theme "Protection of the Coastline, Dredging and Sustainable Development" from 1 to 3 November 2006. Today, dredging interests extend to all facets of intervention works on the seabed, either for the restructuring or maintenance of facilities, aggregate extraction, submarine structures, beach nourishment and the protection of eroded areas. Smart dredging has become a crucial tool for economic and sustainable development. In 2006 the Dredging Days provide an opportunity for contact and exchange of knowledge and expertise for Euro-Africans and... (read more)

Papers CEDA Dredging Days 2009

CEDA Dredging Days 2009 has issued a call for papers. Next year's conference and exhibition will be held in the Conference Centre, Ahoy Rotterdam, the Netherlands, from 5-6 November 2009, under the theme ‘Dredging tools for the future'.   Many technological innovations have been introduced since 2003, when CEDA Dredging Days was dedicated to dredging tools and technology. Today the industry faces new challenges and new opportunities.  Rising energy costs, climate change, increasing demands for dredging services in new regions, the emergence of new markets, plant shortages and the need for sustainable dredging solutions, are just a few examples from...

Data Fusion for Inland Dredging

Present-day hydrographic surveys can result in many types of information that are used for planning inland dredging projects. Novel geophysical survey systems provide detailed information on sediment composition and pollution levels of dredge spoil. Each data set alone does not give all information needed for proper planning. The combination of data from different sensors provides practical results that can help to reduce the costs of dredging and disposal, reduce risk and improve the quality of the dredging work.<P>   Inland dredging activities require careful planning. Many inland water systems are dredged for nautical reasons, but the pollution levels of the... (read more)

Safe Dredging Around Coral Reefs

A new whitepaper 'Facts About Dredging Around Coral Reefs' gives a clear view of the importance of these natural phenomena, best technical practices to protect coral reefs and how to ensure that the economic and environmental aspects of a project are kept in balance. Strategic planning prior to dredging, Environmental Impact Assessments and Environmental Management Plans during the life-cycle of the project, along with elaborate monitoring plans, are essential to preserve coral reefs whilst still allowing a project to proceed.     Coral reefs are large, long-lived bio-geological structures that include all associated marine plants and animals. Although Coral Reefs... (read more)

Seagrass Mitigation for Miami Harbour Dredging Project

CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA) has successfully completed the transplantation of over 115,000 seagrass plants into a newly filled dredge hole north of the Julia Tuttle Causeway in Miami, Florida, USA, as part of the overall environmental mitigation requirements for the deepening and widening of Miami Harbour. CSA was part of the Great Lakes Dredge and Dock LLC (GLDD) team that was awarded the prime contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The “deep dredge” project took two years to complete and is the first federal navigation project in the southeast built to accommodate post-Panamax vessels. During August and... (read more)

Sharp View at Dredging and Excavation Monitoring

Tritech’s latest product in the Gemini Multibeam range, the Gemini Narrow Beam Imager (NBI), has been used in extremely limited visibility conditions. The Gemini NBI was successfully used by Reef Subsea to monitor the trenched installation of 6-inch and 2-inch cables, while using controlled flow excavation techniques. The seabed conditions around the site varied considerably, however, even where there was high turbidity Reef was able to clearly monitor the cables using the device. With the increasing level of cables being laid in shallow water, where turbidity can be at its worst, the Gemini NBI has proven to be highly effective... (read more)
