Africa Dredging 2012: January 30-February 2, Durban, South AfricaNews // October 12, 2011
Afribiz reports that a major conference about dredging in Africa is to take place in late January 2012.
Ensuring that Africa’s ongoing resource export boom continues apace requires port infrastructure to be optimally maintained and, in many cases, expanded. The number of maintenance and capital dredging projects is therefore increasing, and so are the associated challenges and opportunities.
IQPC’s inaugral Dredging Africa 2012 conference is said to be the only major event dedicated specifically to dredging on the African continent, and follows in the footsteps of our highly successful dredging summits in Australia and Singapore.
The event will be an opportunity to get the latest insight from the key stakeholders including ports, port authorities, dredging contractors, environmental consultants, oil and gas and mining companies and government environmental authorities.
The event will highlight:
• Fast- tracking the approvals process.
• Completing dredging projects on time and within budget.
• Complying with environmental regulations and approval processes to avoid project delays.
• The latest dredging techniques and technologies being employed worldwide.
