Abruzzo, environmental regeneration

Challenge

Environmental redevelopment and protection works along coastline.

Beach nourishment works were necessary along the Abruzzo coastline. The scope represented a total sand volume of 1.3 million m3, construction of new breakwaters and the reinstatement of existing ones to protect the shore using 252,000 tonnes of rock and gravel.

Our solution

Sidra carried out the construction of new breakwaters and the reinstatement of existing ones to protect the shoreline from erosion.

Beach nourishment works were executed in the following locations: Martinsicuro, Roseto degli Abruzzi, Pineto, Silvi, Montesilvano, Ortona, Casalbordino and Vasto. Sand was extracted from a submarine sand quarry in front of Ortona harbour.
