Employer and contractor
In dredging, the employer or client is the person or organisation that requires the dredging work, such as a port authority or port owner, governments or municipalities. The contractor is the party that will execute the dredging work.
In general, a dredging project from start to finish includes the following steps:
- Project identification and decision-making process by the employer
- once the decision has been made that the project will follow through, the employer will start the Procurement strategy to select a contractor for the project
- Project preparation and mobilisation
- Execution of the dredging work and monitoring.
