Coastal Engineering

Services that we can provide

Although coastal protection (sea defences) may seem very simple, it is actually an extremely complex discipline requiring an extensive, theorectical background combined with genuine experience. A number of our staff meet these requirements mastering a wide range of protection methods such as:

  • Revetments
  • Groynes, groyne systems
  • Detached breakwaters
  • Beach nourishment
  • Sand by-passing

In addition to the design of coastal structures, NIRAS is involved in projects relating to coastal zone management in many countries around the world.

See our projects for further details.
