CONSULMAR WINS PUBLIC TENDER FOR THE “FIGUEIRA DA FOZ” BEACH ARTIFICIAL NOURISHMENT PROJECT AND EIA
(Jul. 2021) The public tender for the “Detail Design and Environmental Impact Assessment of the beach artificial nourishment on the Coastal Section south of Figueira da Foz (Cova-Gala – Costa de Lavos)”, promoted by the Portuguese Environment Agency (APA), was won by CONSULMAR in a consortium with Nemus and Hidromod, two companies related to the CONSULMAR Group.
The main Portuguese companies with knowledge in this field were involved in this public tender, as well as the Artelia Group, one of the main international companies specializing in maritime works.
This is an intervention that aims to compensate the coastline erosion, on the southern coastal section of the mouth of the Mondego River, as a result of interventions carried out over the years to stabilize the river outfall and improve the conditions of seaworthiness and access to the port of Figueira da Foz.
That coastal section is one of the most threatened on the mainland Portugal coast, recording considerable setbacks for many years, a process that needs to be mitigated.
