Dredging in Wales Seminar Starts Tomorrow

The ‘Dredging in Wales, A Review and Forward Look’ seminar, organized by the Central Dredging Association (CEDA) and co-promoted by the ICE Wales Region, will take place on Tuesday, 9 May 2017, at Novotel Cardiff Center, Cardiff.

The presentations at the event will primarily be Wales specific, but will be informative for anyone with links to the dredging industry, CEDA said.

“With the ports and harbors of Wales playing a vital role in the country’s economy through imports, exports, offshore energy, fishing and recreation, the creation and maintenance of navigation depths and channels is of fundamental importance,” the organizers stated.
