This article was published in March 2010: "Dredging Rock with a Hopper Dredger: The Road to the Ripper Draghead".

Research, investigations into pickpoints and cutting geometries, predictive models and trials were essential in constructing a ripper draghead that could be placed on a Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger (TSHD).

This article was published in September 2010: "The Changing Maritime Industry: The Impact of Megaprojects on the Workforce".

As the demands on global dredging projects have increased, so have the demands on personnel, crew members, engineers and others in the industry. How has this impacted education and the professional requirements of the workforce?

New Knowledge Centre on IADC’s website (online in July 2017).

If you are looking for any information on dredging, the upcoming Knowledge Centre on IADC’s website will be the place to find all answers.
The website will contain a Knowledge Centre where you will be able to find all answers to your questions regarding the dredging industry. IADC’s online data such as scientific articles, facts sheets and other relevant material on dredging subjects are currently being organised in the new database. The data will be more easy to search.

The Knowledge Centre is expected to go online in July 2017. IADC will keep you updated on the latest developments in the coming months.

This article was published in March 1996: "Sydney Airport's Parallel Runway: The Beneficial Use of Sand Dredged in Botany Bay".

Alternative sources of bulk filling for the runway were considered, but dredging sand in Botany Bay was the most cost-efficient and environmentally sound.

Didi you know:
The International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) has a close working relationship with PIANC - The World Association for Waterborne Transport Infrastructure.

IADC recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with PIANC. IADC’s secretary- general, René Kolman is part of PIANC’s working groups and lends his expertise to them. He is part of PIANC’s EnviCom and the Permanent Task Group Climate Change. He is also mentoring two other working groups – Dredging Port Construction and Mammals and Dredging Port Construction and Plant Habitat.

Furthermore, IADC publishes PIANC reports as well as other dredging related information in its dredging literature page.

New article: Improving Safety.
Download: http://bit.ly/2k1ORS5

This article describes the "Enhanced muster station" aboard the jack-up vessel, Neptune.

The somewhat chaotic muster stations were improved by the simple solution of painting numbered circles on the deck. This helped the ship’s captain ascertain if all crew members were accounted for more easily and efficiently.

GeoSea, member of the DEME Group won the IADC Safety Award 2016 for its "Enhanced muster station" aboard the jack-up vessel, Neptune.

Meet the IADC Staff: René Kolman.
Read about the secretary general of IADC, René Kolman.

René Kolman is the secretary-general of the International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC). He describes his work, challenges and future goals for IADC.

Could you describe your work in IADC?
I am in charge of the secretariat and I translate ideas given by the Board to activities for IADC. The IADC team also comes up with new ideas and I discuss them with the Board. Furthermore, I coordinate all recurring activities of IADC and I am actively involved in various projects such as ensuring the publication of the annual Dredging in Figures. I am also part of the IADC Safety Committee and represent IADC in various organisations such as IAPH and PIANC.”

What do you like most about your work in IADC?
I love the diversity of activities as well as working together with all kinds of people from different cultures and backgrounds.

What challenges do you face in your role as the secretary-general of IADC?
It is a challenge to balance the interests of all individual members while at the same time promoting the general interests of the dredging industry.

What interesting projects or work would you like to do in the near future in IADC?
I would like to promote the ecosystem services (ES) concept and realise the global use of this concept in new marine infrastructure projects. I would also like to see IADC get the recognition as the knowledge centre of dredging. People looking for information on dredging, regardless if they are clients, consultants, public or whomever, should get their information via the IADC website. If they cannot find their answers or information, the secretariat should be able to guide them to it. If stakeholders want to know something about dredging, they should visit the IADC website.
