Coastal Conservation Applications

  • Erosion & sediment control solutions for costal/beach region

    Coastal erosion is the wearing away of land or the removal of beach or dune sediments by wave action, tidal currents, wave currents, or drainage. Removing sand and other materials from beaches and dunes due to tidal storm surges and construction purposes causes massive beach erosion damages and land loss of seashores, thus destroying the natural heritage of the coast and reducing the vibrancy of the tourism industry. Uprooting vegetation from coastal areas destabilises beaches and clearing sites inland results in increased soil and dirt particles being washed offshore and smothering coral reef systems.

    Coastal & Nearshore

    Coastal & Nearshore For coastal and nearshore use DESMI provides the well known Ro-Boom product but in smaller sizes whilst maintaining the integrity of the larger product offerings. Alternatively, you may want to consider SPI or a lighter weight boom if there are deployment and recovery considerations or restrictions. Under these circumstances, the Troilboom AF (Air Filled) offers a light weight rapid response solution. It is manufactured as standard in bright orange polyurethane fabric offering durability and strength. Top tension wires are also available to enhance performance. A wide range of combination skimmers have been developed for the coastal environment. These include weir, brush, disc and belt recovery systems with on-board pumps. This results in systems being able to recover a wide range of oils including emulsions and weathered compounds. An example of this is the Terminator skimmer system.

    Seawater Biotoxicity monitoring to protect the coastal waters of Italy

    The recorded death of fish in the river that flows out of the industrial zone of Scarlino has created the need of the installation of a biological alarm system. The decision was made to work with an automatic system, iTOXcontrol created by microLAN-The Netherlands represented in Italy by Ecotox Lds, which uses marine bacteria. The system compares the values of the light emission from these organisms at the entrance and exit of the canal, generating alarms in the presence of toxic substances.
