Wave absorber in environmentally friendly PE plastic
If your marina is exposed to waves, building a pier is the traditional solution to the problem. In many cases, this is not possible for both economic and regulatory reasons. In that case, a wave damper from Astorplast can be the perfect solution.
Our maintenance-free wave damper in PE plastic which was tested in 2005 at Sintef in Trondheim, where it performed very well. Waves below 3 seconds (typical waves from wind and boat) are reduced by a minimum of 50% with our wave damper. Experience from laid-out wave dampers in full-scale at moderately exposed sites shows the same or better effect. More information from the test can be found below.
In 2019, we produced a 70m and a 80m, wave absorber to Loppa municipality. Pictures are taken by Sandsøy servicebåt A/S , they transported the wave absorber from Fosnavåg to Loppa.
Wave absorber 10m, W: 2m D: 2m
