PORT HARCOURT 2015.
INVITATION TO NOMINATE
DREDGING SOLUTIONS FOR NAVIGATION
CHANNEL UPGRADES AND CARGO THROUGHPUT MANAGEMENT.
Date: Wednesday to Friday, October 14-16, 2015.
Venue: Beverly Hills Hotel, Port Harcourt.
Since 2007, the annual Nigerian dredging summit has offered a supportive forum for operators and stakeholders from within and outside Nigeria to meet and share ideas on the burning issues in the industry. Dredge manufacturers, equipment vendors and service providers have found it a marketplace for their wares and the exhibition stands have made many connections that boosted successful business.
Dredging activities, especially sand winning and reclamation, are fast assuming predominant positions as the solutions of choice for the building, real estate, construction and sand-filling subsectors. The increased demand for all grades of sand is only a part of the dredging industry’s scope whose services also cover most shore-based and shallow-water oilfield production in Nigeria. Thus, indigenous dredging contractors require the right training, orientation or re-orientation for providing adequate products and services for these sectors.
As an index of interest in the programme, the number and
variety of participants in the annual summit and exhibitions continue
to increase, comprising Nigerian and foreign dredging companies, equipment
manufacturers, suppliers and vendors, federal and state government ministries
and regulatory agencies. Regular participants include Ministry of Mines
and Steel, Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Petroleum, Ministry
of Transport, NNPC, NPA, NIMASA, NCDMB, LCM, BCC, Maritime Academy of
Nigeria, Ministry of Works, Ministry of Water Resources, etc.
As usual, there will be excursions to dredging sites and other places of interest. Delegates are usually conveyed in air-conditioned buses on the second day of the summit and exhibition. This year, the excursions include provisional arrangements to visit some dredging sites deep along the Bonny channel using air-conditioned boats. Lunch shall be served on-the-go and the entire package comes as part of the participation fee and does not require any extra payment.
Delegates are advised to come with running shoes or sneakers to better enjoy the experience. T-shirts and caps will be freely supplied.

The State of Nigerian Dredges: A New Dredge Repair Yard.
Many dredges being
offered by dredge owners for contracts in the Nigerian industry right
now are far from healthy. There are stories of dredges being paid for
and on mobilization to site, they begin to manifest serious problems
of disrepair. For many days or weeks or months, the client cannot have
his milestones met because the dredge is down while efforts are being
made to buy spare parts or to bring experienced mechanics to perform
