09:00 SESSION 5 – INTERACTIVE SESSION: CONTRACTUAL PROBLEMS, AND HOW TO AVOID THEM OCCURING
  Mediator: Mike Van der Vijver – MindMeeting, the Netherlands
   
 

The interactive session uses an engaging theoretical case study incorporating issues and problems which are commonly experienced in dredging and offshore projects.

Designed to be accessible and beneficial to all parties to a contract (owner, contractor, subcontractor/supplier and engineer/designer) the session will draw together the combined experience of both the expert panel and the attendees, each of whom will bring their unique insight, problems and solutions to some of the most pressing, relevant and commercially important aspects of the delivery of a dredging project currently being faced on real schemes.
The session is organised by CEDA’s new Dredging Management Commission.

Expert panel:

  • Kathleen De Wit, Principal Engineer, IMDC, Belgium
  • André van Hassent, Assetmanager Ports and Fairways, Port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands
  • Charles Wilsoncroft, Director, HKA, United Kingdom
  • Johny Van Acker, Department Manager Masterdesk Tender Department, Dredging International, Belgium
