  • The dredging industry in India continues to grow owing to the increasing maritime sector requirements. At present, over 120 million cubic metres (cum) of annual dredging is being carried out at major ports and dockyards in the country. The Dredging Guidelines 2021 envisage the dredging activity to ramp up to 3 billion cum over the next 10 years.
  • The demand would largely come from capacity augmentation plans at existing as well as upcoming greenfield ports. In the next few years, most of the key ports are expected to deepen and widen their navigational channels to attract deep draft vessels. Recently, the Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways has announced plans to take up a dredging project worth Rs 3 billion to increase Cochin port’s draft depth to 18 metres to help the port dock larger ships. The development of greenfield ports by major port trusts and maritime states will also contribute to the demand. Besides, the increasing requirement for land reclamation, and the government’s plans to develop inland waterways as an alternative mode of transport will offer considerable dredging opportunities.
  • While the demand for dredging is expected to remain robust, there remains an urgent need to ensure proper and timely execution of projects. The introduction of new designs, technologies and equipment will help in bringing operational efficiency.
  • The Indian dredging industry also faces an acute shortage of dredgers, making it necessary to augment the current fleet to address the anticipated dredging requirements. The growing focus on indigenous manufacturing of dredgers is likely to address this issue while also reducing the dependence on imports. To this end, DCI and Cochin Shipyard Limited have recently signed an agreement to build a 12,000 cum trailing suction hopper dredger.
  • Going forward, the outlook remains positive for the dredging industry. The upcoming 22 greenfield ports and brownfield expansion works at the existing non-major ports will offer huge opportunities for the dredging contractors.
  • The mission of this conference is to discuss the recent trends and developments in the sector, highlight the experience of key players, and identify unresolved challenges. The conference will also focus on strategies and solutions to meet the future dredging requirements and showcase noteworthy projects, technologies and equipment.
