Participation in 33rd PIANC World Congress

Dredge Yard has announced their participation at the 33rd PIANC World Congress (2014) to be held in San Francisco, California.

PIANC World Congress, The World Association for Waterborne Transport Infrastructure, is the forum that brings together professionals around the world to provide expert advice on cost effective, reliable and sustainable infrastructures to facilitate the growth of waterborne transport.

Sponsoring

The dredging and mining equipment manufacturer Dredge Yard, took a lead role in sponsoring the Congress. For 5 consecutive days they will be part of the experts that will present and discuss the development of shallow and deep-draft navigation issues, dredging and dredged material disposal, navigation and port infrastructure, recreational navigation and related environmental matters.

Congresses are held every 4 years in one of PIANC’S member countries. The U.S. Section of PIANC selected San Francisco as the location for this year’s Congress for many reasons but mainly because there are so many “navigation-related” things to see and explore.
