Floating Breakwater  

 One of the significant problems of the modern World is a competent creation of the wave-protected coastal zones by means of hydro-technical structures, which of course leads to huge financial investments.

 

Baltic Floating Structures offers the development of ecologically safe, technically and technologically optimal solutions by means of floating and combined breakwaters.

 

It is necessary to consider all the natural factors of influence on the local water area, when creating a proper waveprotected coastal zone.

 

Baltic Floating Structures offers a full range of services related to hydro-technical researches and development of technical solutions for creation of wave-protected water areas:

 
  • forecast of dangerous hydrodynamic processes;

  • calculation of wave and wind loads;

  • interaction of winds and waves with hydro-technical constructions;

  • calculation of flow fields and other related services;

  • design and construction of floating hydro-technical structures (breakwaters), taking into account all the above factors.

  

Types of Breakwaters: 

  • Long and short period waves preventing

Due to it’s big size this type of breakwaters dampens long period waves up to 70% and the short waves up to 100%. This type is being installed in open water areas(seas and oceans) based on the hydro-dynamic analysis and related research. 

  • For short period waves preventing

Constructed for installation inside the wave-protected water areas, where due to strong winds waves can be increased up to 2 m, creating unacceptable wave loads for normal port operations. 

  • Submerged

Submerged-type breakwaters, after its’ launching and installation, are being immersed to water by filling of the case with soil from the bottom of the protected water area. Thereby eliminating interfering alluviums and at the same time deepening the water area without soil export to the dumping place. The pontoon immersed by such method becomes the main part of a hydro-technical design of the wave-protecting system, perceiving the main loads from the energy of waves, protecting the water area from particles of soil.

 

Floating breakwaters have a number of advantages over the stationary breakwaters: 

 

  • are ecologically safe (do not interfere with natural circulation of water)
  • no harm to microflora of the aquatory during construction and operation;
  • hydrotechnical works during construction are reduced to minimum;
  • financially more beneficial (especially in deep water areas)

 

Floating breakwaters are being designed and constructed according to technical parameters of each specific installation site.
