Egis has expanded its portfolio by signing a new and important contract in Romania to provide Project management services for Reducing Coastal Erosion Phase II with Dobrogea-Litoral Water Basin Administration to provide project management servicesThis coastal protection project is a 2nd phase of the Romania’s action plan to protect its Black Sea shoreline against erosion caused both by anthropic and natural phenomena, that have significantly impacted the coast over the years and continue to do so. Shores are reducing at a rapid pace, as several comprehensive studies revealed annual losses with decays of up to 2 meters per year in some areas. The Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve alone has lost more than 2,400 hectare, about 80 hectare per year, over the last 35 years. This erosion affects the coastline ecosystems and causes losses of valuable land with dramatical social and economic impacts.The practical actions to prevent the on-going degradation are considered along a 30 kilometers area from Edighiol and Periboina sluices, through Mamaia, Tomis, Agigea, Eforie, Costinesti, Olimp, Jupiter-Neptun, Balta Mangalia-Venus-Aurora, Mangalia-Saturn up to 2 Mai. Actions consist of construction of submerged protection structures, coastal revetments, beach extensions and remodelling, along with implementation of an integrated program to support long-term operation and maintenance and environment monitoring.Egis’ role in this important project is to support the contracting authority in its project management responsibility, with the aim to enhance performance in contracts administration, financial management, claims management, communication and other working processes, to guarantee optimum use of funds and achievement of project objectives through an appropriate and timely implementation.
