An example of an Environment project:

Protection to reduce wave and tidal storm damage to exposed infrastructure

A Scottish company has developed innovative designs that have been patented for reducing storm damage and tidal surge to infrastructure located near primary estuary channels and large rivers. The concept can also be applied for coastal bays. The primary function is to protect critical infrastructure against wave and tidal surge impacts by weakening using destructive interference. International interest has extended to other countries including homeland security and national defence organisations and European industrial partners for some complex components.

This innovative idea also sits within the following key project theme:
