An environmental remediation intervention of the beaches and the seabed to return the coast to local inhabitants.

Proger – leading company of the JV made up of RINA, Ambiente, Arcadis, Finalca Ingegneria, 3ba, DHI and ASPS – has been awarded the tender for the award of technical services for the design of the new coastline of Bagnoli-Coroglio and the restoration of bathing facilities through the removal of the fill, the reclamation of the emerged beaches and the rehabilitation and management of marine sediments.

The procedure, which is part of the Environmental Remediation and Urban Regeneration Plan of Bagnoli – Coroglio (PRARU) managed by Invitalia, is in charge of: environmental investigation and preventive search for war bombs; works to demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiency of marine sediment remediation technologies; final design for integrated procurement and safety coordination in the design phase; drafting of the specific health / environmental risk assessment for sandy shores and marine sediments and hydrodynamic modeling; optional works management and safety coordination services during the execution phase.

The objective of such operation, within the new landscape of the former Italsider area, is to return the 2-kilometer coastline to its inhabitants, thanks to the removal of the reclaimed area (a platform built in the 1960s and consisting of one million of cubic meters of cement and waste material from the steel mill) and the reclamation of the north and south beaches, with the re-environmentalization of the seabed.
