Recently we attended the CEDA Dredging Days conference in the Ahoy at Rotterdam. Whilst attending the event we were representing and promoting the USAR project.
CEDA Dredging Days is the flagship conference of the Central Dredging Association (CEDA) and is the main event on the dredging industry calendar in the CEDA (EMEA) region. It’s widely considered to be the primary forum for leading researchers, and industry experts, to share ideas, discuss challenges and consider potential solutions. The conference is well-attended by professionals representing the entire cross-section of the dredging field. It’s also appreciated for the exceptional networking opportunities it offers.
William (Director of Exo), delivered a pitch presentation on behalf of the USAR partnership, to the 150 attendees. The two-minute pitch focused on the USAR outputs. This included: WIKISED, Operational Sediment Management System (OSMS), the Sediment Management Strategy, as well as showcasing the USAR pilots.
Exo Environmental were heavily involved with the USAR pilot at Brightlingsea. This is because we were the designers and managers of the iconic “beneficial use of dredged material” (BUDM) pilot. The pilot saw 35,000m3 of sediment used to restore the local saltmarshes in support of the coastal defences amongst numerous other eco-system services.
