Reef Enhancing Breakwater
Protection from coastal erosion and enhancement of marine ecosystems
Reef Enhancing Breakwaters (REB) are modular artificial reef structures. REB is stable to dissipate wave energy to protect the coasts from erosion whilst providing the required substrate and habitat complexity to boost marine biodiversity.
REB is a unique solution distinctly different from traditional breakwaters and artificial reefs. Traditional solid concrete breakwaters can be damaging to marine ecosystems, while currently available artificial reef structures are often not stable enough to dissipate waves and ensure coastal protection.
Reef Enhancing Breakwaters (REB) dissipate up to 90% of wave energy protecting beaches and assets from erosion
