08 Mar WAVE BUMPER – THE STARTUP PROVIDER OF WEATHER ADAPTATION SOLUTIONS
Wave Bumper is a startup that provides solutions in order to adapt to inclement weather. It is a movable protection dam that can be easily installed.
The company is aware that numerous socio-economic challenges are concentrated on the coasts, including all those related to the protection of exceptional environmental capital. However, environmental parameters evolve, most of the time as a result of climate change.
The potential evolution of sea level and the increase in rainfall increase the risks of erosion and marine immersion. That’s why Wave Bumper has come up with this answer to a global problem.
The first self-ballasted mobile dam that can be easily installed in cases of alert and reused in another event is the solution provided by Wave Bumper. It is a soft solution and respectful with the ecology from the exposed places.
One of his innovations lies in a distinctive curve that absorbs the energy of the wave and generates a movement back to the ocean, thus limiting the overflow in a more efficient way than a system equipped with a vertical wall.
Climate change and the consequences of shoreline erosion and the risk of marine immersion require a new and integrated approach to coastal planning and management.
Currently, public and private economic actors need to find adaptable protection solutions in order to limit the damages related to natural disasters.
Wave Bumper technology can be included in all programs and action plans and risk prevention related to the coastline, favoring flexible management models:
- Aquatic environment management and flood prevention (GEMAPI)
- Flood Prevention Action Programs (PAPI)
- Marine Immersion Risk Prevention Plans (PPRI)
Finally, it is important to note that it is a lightweight, adaptable, resistant solution, with little footprint, easy to store and of French origin.
