On 23rd November, Damen Shipyards Group will hold its first African Dredging Seminar at Damen Shipyards Cape Town. The seminar will be attended by personnel from Damen and its suppliers as well as representative of the South African Government and TNPA. The seminar is open to all with an interest in the dredging industry.

During the event, a number of presentations will consider the importance of dredging in Africa, looking at a number of past, present and future projects covering both maintenance and capital dredging. There will also be a demonstration of a Damen submersible DOP/dredging Pump 150.

Damen colleagues will deliver presentations covering the equipment provided by Damen Dredging Equipment (DDE) and the Damen Dredging Product Group, the financing arrangements available from Damen Finance and the after-sales care provided by Damen Services.

Damen has delivered a number of products from the DDE range in Africa. Included in this are a number of the renowned DOP submersible dredging pumps.

Benny Bhali, head of sales at Damen Shipyards Cape Town, said, “We are very excited and looking forward to this event. Dredging has enormous potential to open up additional trading opportunities in Africa. This will be a great chance for stakeholders to discuss the opportunities with a range of experts. I would encourage anyone with an interest in the sector to attend this event.”

The Damen Dredging Seminar will be take place on 23rd November at Damen Shipyards Cape Town, starting at TIME. For more information or to arrange attendance, please contact Ursula Daschner, ud@damen.co.za or +27 21 447 1714.
