Patents for ECOPONTOON, BIO-PONTON and GREEN-PONTOON

The proposed concept consists of modular artificial habitat specially made for new or existing floating and fixed pontoons.

It is evolutionary and can be adjusted and upgraded to suit the ecological features of any aquatic environment. It is an innovation that is of interest for coastal ports but also for inland waters (lakes, ponds, rivers and canals).

VULSACO: VULnerability of SAndy COast systems to climate change

ANR Research project on Vulnerability, the Environment and Climate, 2007-2010, a Euro-Mediterranean Risk Competitiveness Cluster approved theme.

Today 41% of the beaches in Metropolitan France are dwindling away due to erosion while 10% are accumulating sediments.

The aim of the VULSACO project is twofold: To identify and assess indicators for physical vulnerability (to erosion and submersion by the sea) at short term (storms) and at long terms (2030); to identify the effects of the human occupation factor on coastal zone vulnerability.

COPTER: Coastal OPTimization to combat ERosion

The project addresses coastal erosion control and more generally the management of sandy coastlines by optimizing their shape.

Optimizing the shape means using all possible digital optimization methods that allow the shape of a piece of land or other area (a length of the coastline, a set of dikes, sand barriers…) subject to the effects of one or several physical processes (swell, currents,…), ...

Brevet ATAP : Appontement temporairement auto-protégé

Yachting harbours in France are struggling to find room for all the boats that need to use them. To help solve their problems BRL Ingénierie invented ATAP - (Appontement Temporairement Auto-Protégé) which means temporary automatic protection for landing stages against the swell thanks to an automatically triggered or controlled pneumatic wave-breaker.
