Organization of American States, National Port Authority of Peru Commend Piedroba for Outstanding Executive Dredging Seminar.
Piedroba Consulting Group (PCG), in a partnership with The Organization of American States (OAS) hosted a successful Executive Dredging Seminar in Peru last week. PCG’s staff traveled to Lima, Peru to visit the Autoridad Portuaria Nacional (APN) de Peru on August 21-22, and educate the 35 Port Officials in attendance on the different dynamics surrounding dredging projects. The Seminar addressed topics such as: Dredge Project Design, Contract Administration, Risk Management, Site Investigations, Environmental Compliance, and Performance-Based Contracting among others.
"The seminar was an excellent event. We are very satisfied and we are already planning a second seminar with Piedroba on Environmental Risks in Dredging. The keynote speech on dredging by Dr. Luis Prieto-Portar, as well as the lectures by Ing. Luis Prieto y Muñoz were outstanding," said Elar Salvador, Chief of Unit for Capacity Building, APN. I would like to congratulate and thank you, and Dr. Luis Prieto-Portar, for the high level and most interesting excellent presentations. Your outstanding contributions were of great benefit to the attendees and contributed to most fruitful discussions. I would also like to thank Mr. Jelle Prins for his excellent collaboration for the preparation of this successful Seminar.
Thanks to Piedroba Consulting Group, LLC., this Seminar promoted the exchange of valuable information and it also encouraged participants to raise questions relevant to their daily work which, I am sure, will help to increase awareness and technical knowledge on this important matter.
Dr. Luis Prieto-Portar of Piedroba Consulting Group (PCG) has begun a new consultancy task for the World Bank Group, supporting the tender management of the $300 Million Rio Salado Project in the Buenos Aires Province. Both PCG’s Dr. Luis Prieto-Portar and Jelle Prins have already been contracted for different World Bank functions this year, and being able to do so now in Argentina offers a great opportunity. Dr. Prieto-Portar added: “I’ve spent many years of my career working pleasantly in Argentina, and to be able to return now and partner with the World Bank to enhance flood protection in the Buenos Aires Province and develop the competitiveness of the local economy through this investment is a satisfying journey”.
