Beach nourishment

Dravo S.A. has an extensive background in beach nourishment projects all over the world, and we specialise in a methodology using floating pipe lines.

In this manner we can execute the works occupying only 100–200 metres of the beach at any given time. Moving the floating pipe line as the project progresses means that much of the beach can remain open to the public while the regeneration work proceeds. This is big advantage compared to the traditional methodology using submerged welded iron pipes and steel land lines, where the whole beach to be regenerated will have to be closed off.
