Many ICE Representatives around the world organise tours of civil engineering projects for members, with the aim to further their technical and professional knowledge.
Members in Netherlands had the opportunity to visit and learn more of the Thialf. The Thialf is the largest such vessel in the world, capable of lifting 14,200t and is used primarily in offshore oil and gas projects for installing modules and topsides. It was used in a number of projects including Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam and Chevron's Benguela Belize compliant tower.
The members learned about the equipment and the operations as well as vital areas within the vessel that contribute to the successful execution of projects.
