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 needed repairs.
Describing this ugly situation, Sir Isaac Chuks, CEO of Funq Tai Engineering Company, summed it up that many “Nigerian dredges work for two hours and spoil for five hours”. Read more.

2013 QUARTERLY DREDGING TRAINING COURSES

1. A 5-DAY DREDGE MASTER REFRESHER COURSE (theory and practicals). (WARRI).

2. A 2-DAY DREDGING EXECUTIVE MANAGEMENT COURSE. (LAGOS).

Introduction:
The first module of training for dredge masters and engineers by the Association will take place in Warri, Delta State, Nigeria beginning from February 18 - 22, 2013. The training programme, and subsequent ones to be organized at the same venue, are being facilitated by Nigerian Westminster Dredging and Marine Ltd as follows:

Applications are hereby invited from interested candidates and companies who wish to take advantage of this opportunity to train themselves or to refresh the skills of their dredging crews. Dredge masters and engineers are major skills that are indispensable in the workforce of many dredging firms.

Being a lucrative subsector of her oil and gas and civil construction industries, Nigeria’s dredging industry needs constant training and retraining of critical field staff like dredge masters and engineers.

Our Association, by these training programmes, will contribute to the development of a pool of skilled and competent operators who can manage the techniques and technology of dredging locally and who can aid succession planning and national technology transfer.

Twelve (12) dredge master and engineers will be selected for the first exercise. Arrangements for their accommodation and feeding will be made by the organizers. The trainees will also be certified after the course.

Candidate with previous experience as dredge masters and engineers are at advantage to be selected for the course. Freshers can also be specifically nominated by companies to undergo the training as part of their human resources development plans. The chances are on first-come first-served basis.

2. A 2-DAY DREDGING EXECUTIVE MANAGEMENT COURSE. (LAGOS).

(Provisional Schedule)
Venue: Four Points Sheraton Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria.
Date: June 13-14, 2013.
Time: 9:00 AM Daily.


This course has been packaged with the local dredging companies’ chief executives and top managers in mind because of the peculiar challenges they face to grow their companies. Although many local dredging companies start out in Nigeria, the statistics show that nearly 75%, that is three in every four operators, crash out or get bogged down with many operational problems.
What are they doing wrongly? Are there tried and tested techniques that operators must adopt if they want to prolong the life of their equipment, achieve longevity, success and profitability in dredging business?
The Dredging Executive Management Course will bring you face-to-face with brilliant minds and resource persons from Lagos Business School and some multinational dredging companies who will teach strategy, succession planning and essential management methods needed for the successful growing dredging company. Dredge manufacturers and dealers will also make presentations.

Course Fees: N200,000.00 per person.
