Italian technology for coast protection: Dragflow at the AIOM event

6/10/2017

Coastal erosion phenomena are a constant in many sandy areas of the coasts. If extreme weather events aggravates the problem, it’s a fact that, in recent years, beaches protection has not been kept in due attention.
Yet in Italy there are technologies that would allow, at low costs, to protect the coasts and shelter them from the most serious consequences. During the AIOM "Marine Engineering Research and Applications" event, which will take place in Ancona on October 13 and 14, we will discuss this important topic.
Eng. Massimo Montevecchi will explain how by using bypass it is possible to move sediments from accumulation to erosion areas, protecting the coasts.
The Dragflow submersible pumps can be used in this type of project and safeguard the coast, with limited spending and a reduced visual impact on the landscape.
