Mauritius Wave Attenuating Reef Installed

Subcon’s in-house designed Wave Attenuating Reef Modules have been installed at Mon Choisy in Mauritius.  Supported through the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the submerged artificial reef system comprises 2 linear arrays of Subcon ‘Bombora’ modules of 90-120m lengths.

The modules and the installation was performed using local Mauritian personnel.

“With reefs protecting beaches from coastal erosion, serving as a wave break to insulate hotels and other valuable coastal infrastructure from rising seas, and providing artisanal fishers with food for their families, these delicate and threatened ecosystems are essential to the national economy,” said Mr. V K Daby, Permanent Secretary of the Mauritius Ministry of Ocean, Economy, Marine Resources and Shipping.
