This is a coastal defence project in a tourist area in Romania. New groynes and beaches will be designed and the project includes environmental works.

The projectโ€™s goals are:

  • making way for more nature-friendly and sustainable coastal defence alternatives;
  • ensuring that this coastal town is protected from erosion by the waves of the Black Sea;
  • boosting the tourism sector due to the new beaches.

The coastal reinforcement project is expected to be completed in 2023.
