Breakwater Health Scan

Breakwaters and revetments most of times provide navigation support, sheltered and calm waters and protection against siltation of harbour basins. Revetments provide shoreline stability of existing or reclaimed land against waves, currents and flooding. These marine structures are subject to large and dynamic hydraulic impacts that may cause damage depending on their function. Ship collisions, earthquakes and excessive scour holes can also cause several types of breakwater damages. Damage is easily detectable above water but far more difficult under water.

In order to obtain a fully integrated independent insight in the condition or health status of the structure, a strong combination of marine engineering expertise, scanning- and visualisation techniques have been combined in this initiative BREAKWATERHEALTHSCAN®.

Skeye is one of the four partners that form the BREAKWATERHEALTHSCAN® partnership.
