DredgDikes Tasks in Denmark Completed

During the 3rd Mini-Call of the South Baltic Programme the DredgDikes project successfully applied for additional funding to perform investigations in Denmark. The marine investigations company Orbicon from Roskilde was contracted to take samples from six locations in the Danish Zealand region. The samples were then analysed in the geotechnical laboratory at the Chair of Geotechnics and Coastal Engineering, University of Rostock as well as a geochemical laboratory in Rostock.

The contractor also prepared a comprehensive study about the legal framework and actual possibilities for the use of dredged materials in dike constructions in Denmark and evaluated the results of the sediment analysis in accordance to the Danish regulations.

The report of the study is available in the download section of this website.
