Marina Plan Plus Earns Envision Silver

The overall objective of the MARINAPLAN PLUS (www.lifemarinaplanplus.eu) project is to apply and demonstrate at industrial scale an innovative and reliable technology for marine and coastal management able to ensure navigability and access to ports throughout the year, thus allowing at the same time thriving maritime economy and environmental sustainability. The technology avoids the usual collection of littoral materials nearby the entrance of harbours through the installation of submerged and static devices, called “ejectors”, which are fed by pressurized water, aspire a mixture of water and sediments and convey it through a pipe in an area where does not constitute obstacle to navigation. The project has been co-funded by EASME in the LIFE+ funding line, which funds sustainability and environment-oriented projects.
