Millions of cubic metre seabed material is dredged and pushed around every year for various purposes. Disturbing the seabed constitutes a source of pollution and while dredging supports fundamental needs of societies, tough legislation is in place to protect the marine environment and keep pollution in check. Environmental protection agencies around the world are constantly raising the bar, which puts innovation at the heart of the dredging industry to drive new green technologies.
So how can one ensure that dredging activities are carried out in an environmentally friendly way? The answer: by using modelling software!
Dr. Jacob Hjelmager Jensen, Head of Projects at DHI, answers our questions about the role of computer models in dredging today and shares his insight on how models will drive innovation going forward in this digital age. Continue reading “Here’s the answer to eco-friendly dredging”
