Coastal

As a result of our partnership with CSIR – South Africa’s most respected scientific research institute – Hydromulch has successfully rehabilitated and stabilised kilometres of coastal dunes on the East and West coasts of South Africa. The CSIR were responsible for the engineering designs of the dunes, shoreline management and project consultation, whilst Hydromulch were responsible for the construction and subsequent stabilisation of the coastal dunes. Dune Reclamation Management prevents wind-blown sand deposits, erosion and shifting of dunes, thereby maintaining shoreline stability and wave management.

Dune formations in SA and across the world are being threatened with erosion and increasing pressure, due to the increase of human activity in coastal areas, Such was the case along South Africa’s East and West Coasts.
