IADC presents the LIFE MARINAPLAN PLUS project

The LIFE MARINAPLAN PLUS project is the first-of-a-kind demonstration plant at industrial scale of an innovative solution for the sustainable management of sediment in marine infrastructures.

In June 2019, the research team of the LIFE MARINAPLAN PLUS project began operating the plant installation at the harbour entrance of Marina di Cervia (Italy).

Fulfilling the project’s objective to apply at industrial scale a reliable technology for the sustainable management of sediment in marine infrastructures, this technology prevents harbour silting through the use of submerged devices called ‘ejectors’ installed on the seabed.

Funded by the European Commission within the framework of the LIFE programme and co-funded by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME), the project was coordinated by the Italian company Trevi.

The story on LIFE MARINAPLAN PLUS project is published in the spring issue of IADC’s scientific journal Terra et Aqua. Articles in Terra et Aqua investigate and explain the latest innovations relevant in the dredging industry and its related sectors.
