Welcome to Dredging and Reclamation 2015 ?
Maintenance dredging continues to be required at our ports, despite the nation wide downturn in capital works projects. Maintenance dredging is not only operationally necessary for ports, it makes business sense– it represents a significant opportunity for economic growth and state development.
Industry insiders agree, that the public perception of dredging is often negative as it is often seen as the root cause of environmental harm.
This is having a serious effect on the ability of some stakeholders to successfully carry-out urgently required maintenance dredging projects and from contributing to state development, employment growth and wealth creation. Is a balance between the development imperatives of industry and the need for environmental protection achievable?
