A look into dredging in Wales.

About this event

With the ports and harbours 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.

CEDA are holding their spring seminar in Wales and have brought together a distinguished panel of speakers to make presentations on behalf of marinas, ports, regulators and developers with regard to dredging and its related topics.

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