Coastal Engineering & Water Management

Coastal engineering, is one of the core expertise areas of Delta Marine Consultants. The interaction between land and water creates complex environments. Coastal areas and river banks have always been important to trade and are therefore vital links in the economic chain.

Coastal works, just like ports, are very much influenced by natural phenomena such as tidal change, wave action and extreme weather conditions, which is why they call for specialized expertise. The fact that Delta Marine Consultants has advised a large number of multi-nationals on the optimization of port layouts is proof of our large expertise in this field.

Our coastal teams has extensive experience in design of coastal structures and reclamations. Expert skills include for example:

  • Breakwater and Shore protection design
  • Morphology
  • Wave action and tidal studies
  • Dredging and land reclamation
  • Model tests
