Innovative and affordable floating constructions have huge impact on corals and beaches

A recent feasibility study for Saba Fort Bay learned that the hurricane threat and distructive waves was a major concern. For this reason we spoke with engineers and experts on wave forces to understand the durability of floating constructs. We found out that the strike length and distructive currents are the main cause of demolition of the harbor.

Floating constructs and wave breakers can heavily reduce the distructive energy build-up in waves and protect corals at times of hurricanes and windreversals. To better understand this we have made an presentation as enclosed
