  • The dredging sector is set for exciting times ahead, thanks to increased activity in the ports and inland waterways sector.
  • Overall, 263 projects worth Rs 1.4 trillion have been identified under the port modernisation component of the Sagarmala programme, which would increase port capacity from 1,400 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) to 2,500 mtpa by 2025. The creation of new berths and terminals at the existing ports as well as the development of new ports will drive the demand for dredging.
  • Meanwhile, vessel sizes are increasing worldwide in order to achieve economies of scale. Large vessels can be berthed only by undertaking deepening works, which offers significant potential for dredging.
  • Meanwhile, vessel sizes are increasing worldwide in order to achieve economies of scale. Large vessels can be berthed only by undertaking deepening works, which offers significant potential for dredging.
  • Besides ports and inland waterways, the demand for dredging from onshore resource exploration, navy and shipyards, etc. is potentially vast. Land reclamation, waterfront development and beach nourishment are other growth drivers.
  • The disinvestment of the Dredging Corporation of India (DCI) augurs well for the growth of the sector. The four ports – Visakhapatnam Port Trust, Paradip Port Trust, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust and Deendayal Port Trust – have taken a 73 per cent stake in the company. Post this move, DCI is expected to have more operational and financial freedom in decision-making, which would enable it to take up and execute more works in an efficient way.
  • Given the dredging needs and requirements, significant opportunities exist for private players. DCI alone cannot meet the demand of the industry.
  • Indigenisation in the manufacturing of dredgers is also receiving increased attention, primarily in light of the Make in India initiative. Meanwhile, dredging companies are already adopting or looking to adopt state-of-the-art technologies and equipment for efficient operations. New designs in dredgers as well as its components are being explored to enhance productivity and reduce fuel consumption.
  • At the same time, the sector continues to struggle with various issues such as a complex tax structure, lack of standardisation of contracts, inaccurate
    assessment of project costs and the quantity to be dredged, lack of repair facilities, and shortage of trained personnel to undertake dredging operations.
  • The mission of this conference is to highlight the emerging trends and opportunities in the sector and discuss the key challenges. The conference will focus on strategies and solutions to meet the future dredging requirements. It will also showcase some noteworthy initiatives, projects and technologies.
