Coastal Care ApS
CoastCare operates in the coastal environment sector as an Integrated Coastal Zone Management consultancy. We work with the application of the Hydrodynamic Beach Stabilisation System to combat coastal erosion known as the CoastCare System. It is an environmentally friendly soft engineering approach to beach erosion abatement, which works by increasing the permeability of the beach bed. It is non-polluting and has a very low impact on the visible beach aesthetics. Whereas most other systems are designed to capture or replace sediment lost due to erosion by introducing measures to impede the natural flow of sediment and to change sea current patterns, the CoastCare System affects only the properties of the beach strata. It neither actively impedes the natural long shore sediment transport by introducing hard structures into the sea, nor does it deflect the along shore current. Virtually all components of the system are always subsoil-installed in the beach bed using GPS positioning.
