CSD Production Intensive

Do you want to get more production out of your Cutter Suction Dredger (CSD)?
Then this training is perfect for you.

If a CSD doesn’t produce, it’s worthless. And it shouldn’t just produce, but produce enough to be competitive. Getting sludge through the pipe is one thing, but achieving competitive production is quite another.

Therefore, Strategic Dredging has developed the “CSD Production Intensive” training. This is a 5-day, intense training full of interaction, exercises, case studies, and plenty of room for questions.

We have many years of experience in the dredging industry, having worked with one of the biggest dredging contractors and for the world’s leading dredging manufacturer. Now, our successful company helps others get the most out of their dredger.

This training is aimed at vessel and site personnel who want to learn how to get the most production out of any CSD. Contact us here to start planning your training.
