ABPmer Works on Pagham Harbor Task

The working group for Pagham Parish Council, Pagham Flood Defense Steering Group (PFDSG), has engaged with ABPmer to identify the best solution for managing the large shingle spit fronting Pagham Harbor, West Sussex. 

This spit has grown substantially over the last decade and an intervention is needed to ease the pressure of erosion that it is placing on the Pagham foreshore and the related, ongoing threats to properties along that frontage.

The work to be undertaken by ABPmer will involve determining the design of, and securing the planning permissions needed for, an appropriate intervention.

Colin Scott, coastal realignment specialist at ABPmer said: “Pagham Harbor is a location which exemplifies the challenges of managing, and living beside, an ever-changing coastal environment. It also illustrates how we need to work with and not against natural process at the coast.

Our team is very familiar with these issues and successfully carried out the bulk of the scheme design, coastal modelling and impact assessment work that was needed to secure the consents for the Medmerry managed realignment project on the adjacent coastline. We therefore bring to this project detailed understanding of the evolution and maintenance of the shingle defenses along that frontage as well as a wealth of experience in EIA and related consents for such projects,” added Scott.

We have already had productive meetings with regulators as the project is on a tight schedule to complete the necessary assessment work and secure the required consents to allow for this intervention to take place before this coming winter,” said Scott.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
