There are eight nominations in the running for the Safety Award 2018! IADC is proud to announce the next nomination is Mooring ropes handles by DEME Group.

Mooring a ship while alongside a berth or another vessel can be a very hazardous operation. To increase the safety of crew during mooring/unmooring activities, DEME group has implemented mooring ropes handles.

Made of 20 centimeters of gardening hose, a handle is attached to the mooring eye with nylon ropes (0.6 mm diameter). The handles keep the hands of the crew member in charge of the (un)mooring activity out of the ‘risk zone’ which is situated inside the mooring eye in between the rope and the bollard.

How navigable are fluid mud layers?

Safe navigation through ports and waterways is determined by the space available under a ship's keel, but a seabed of fluid mud can get in the way.

For water infrastructure projects, the importance of vision and value creation, adapting projects to nature from the onset, and viewing a project and its effect over the long term are key to success. Learn about this vision and value creation during the CEDA-IADC Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure Conference at www.sustainabledredging.com

Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure made its debut in Mexico City.
Maurice De Kok presented CEDA and IADC’s upcoming book to the Inter-American Committee on Ports (CIP).

The 11th Ordinary Meeting of the Inter-American Committee on Ports (CIP) of the Organization of American States (OAS) recognised the need for a sustainability strategy in ports, which includes environmental, social and economic aspects, with the theme of Sustainable Management for Port Competitiveness.

This is why it was fitting that CEDA and IADC’s upcoming publication ‘Dredging for Sustainable Infrastructure’ was revealed to attendees of the recent OAS-CIP meeting. Maurice De Kok, Director Strategic Business Development at Van Oord, presented the new guidebook on behalf of the International Association of Dredging Companies.

Available internationally in November 2018, the guidebook contains contributions from leading specialists in the field and will serve as an authoritative guide to delivering dredging projects that enhance the natural and socio-economic systems.
