Dredging and sustainability in the north west, Liverpool

About this event

This combined CEDA UK and Young CEDA event is open to all (non CEDA members welcomed) and is a free event. We hope that it will provide a useful and interesting discussion on the topic of dredging and sustainability focused on the North West of England. It also provides a good opportunity for networking and meeting those involved in CEDA in the UK and is aimed at anyone working or studying in a related field.

The Port of Liverpool is one of the largest, busiest and most diverse ports in the UK, sitting on both sides of the River Mersey. The port was recently extended with the construction of Liverpool2, a new £400m deep-water container terminal, which opened in 2016. This has doubled the port’s container capacity and made it one of the country’s best-equipped and connected terminals.

The day will consist of a site visit around Liverpool2 in the morning followed by an afternoon seminar; however, you are very welcome to just attend the seminar as places are limited for the site visit. Liverpool is an excellent example of where both dredging, and the adoption of a sustainable approach is vital for the ongoing success of the port. The seminar will consider various projects in the North West of England. Please note that the site visit will be restricted on numbers, following registration below. For those attending the site visit, lunch will be provided.

The site visit is from 11:00 – 13:00 and the afternoon seminar from 14:00 – 17:00.

A further announcement will be issued shortly, providing details of the speakers and a summary of their talks.
