Port and Coastal Planning - Skills and Services
In order to provide high quality services and reliable results and interpretations, our teams are highly qualified:
• engineers and PhD graduates specializing in hydrodynamics and modelling
• engineers specialized in maritime engineering and projects
• qualified technicians specializing in taking measurements at sea.
These skills mean that we can tackle studies concerning:
Obtaining local and reliable data:
On-site measurements made specifically to acquire oceanographic and meteorological data help to acquire information taking into account all the local parameters (bathymetry variations, bed movements, one-off hydrodynamic and hydrological variations, etc.)
Making information available:
When carrying out coastal or offshore work, real time monitoring of agitation conditions can help to organize the different phases and optimize work-sites. These applications can complement other measurements: geotechnical, acoustic, ship tests
Hydrodynamic process modelling
Powerful calculation resources associated with mathematical simulation models help to display spatial and temporal evolutions of the different hydrodynamic processes: swell patterns, agitation, displacement of water masses, currents, tides... depending on the different meteorological conditions.
Sizing projects following hydrodynamic constraints:
On-site measurements carried out specifically to acquire oceanographic and meteorological data help to obtain information that takes into account all the local parameters (bathymetry variations, bed movements, one-off hydrodynamic and hydrological variations, etc.). These parameters are the tools that engineers use to establish project work sizing and direction (breakwaters, docks, protection, pontoons, etc.).
