Dutch Paralympic Sailors aim for gold!
The Paralympic Games 2016 has started in Rio de Janeiro. Among the 114 Dutch athletes also two sailors are competing in the Skud18; Rolf Schrama and Sandra Nap. This duo will sail for gold from 12 to 17 September under the guidance of coach Ronald van Vianen and the detailed current forecast of Svašek Hydraulics.
Marina Cadzand-Bad is nearing completionAugust 2016
The weak link Cadzand-Bad is reinforced by constructing a marina. The construction works for this marina have started early 2015 and completion is planned for October 2016. At this moment the piles for the floating jetties are installed.
Svašek Hydraulics was involved in the design and optimisation process of the marina. On behalf of the Waterboard Scheldestromen, Svašek was responsible for the quality assurance during the design and construct phase of the project.
Svašek Hydraulics has written design reports of the sea defence and has applied various numerical wave models. The detailed design conditions are derived using SWAN. Wave penetration between the breakwaters is simulated with HARES. FINEL2D is applied to forecast morphological development for different layouts of the marina and to assess the safety for swimmers.
