Coastline erosion contributes to the loss of extremely valuable lands, which can affect coastline ecosystems and cause economic and social loss to the area. Therefore, in 2012, ANAR (Romanian Waters National Administration) approved a “Coastline Protection and Rehabilitation” Masterplan. In current conditions, without taking any measures of intervention at the level of the coastline, the pace of degradation/retraction of the coastline is a few meters per year, both in the north side of the Romanian coast, as well as in the south. The masterplan identifies structural measures on a short, medium and long term. The success with the promotion of projects with financing in Phase I (maximum emergency) 2007-2014 leads to the implicit promotion of projects with financing in Phase II 2014-2020, so as to create a single, stable, highly-efficient defence line against Romanian coastline erosion. DEME has requested CDR to propose possible optimizations and alternative layouts for the coastal protection scheme for the Eforie area.
CDR has studied and designed the possible optimizations and alternative layouts for the coastal protection scheme for the Eforie area, for which the length and number of groynes and amount of nourished sand is optimized, while meeting the design criteria. The UNIBEST model has been used to assess the morphological development. Report included:
- Wave Climate Review
- Morphological Assessment and alternative groyne lay-outs
