PHOTO: Lincshore Beach Renourishment Project

Team Van Oord recently released this photo taken during the Lincshore beach re-nourishment project.

During the works, undertaken by TVO in 2015 and 2016 on behalf of the Environment Agency, around 850,000 cubic meters of sand was used to reinstate the beaches to their design level and profile.

The scheme involved dredging sand from a designated offshore location using a Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger.

The material was then pumped to the shore via a floating pipeline, replacing the sand lost during winter storms. The sand is required to maintain effective protection of the primary hard sea defenses by reducing the risk of waves reaching and overtopping the main sea defenses, thereby protecting them from damage and erosion.

Project Lincshore, which first began in 1994, is the Environment Agency’s flagship scheme to replenish Lincolnshire beaches, thereby helping reduce flood risk to thousands of homes and businesses along the coast.
