ECAB Projects

There are now several ECAB Revetments installed throughout Ireland. These revetments have stood the test of several storms that have lashed our coastlines since the 1990s.

This video shows a sample of them. Note how the older revetments have blended into the environment, where the stones have aged and maram grass has grown through. This is so important in visually sensitive areas.


ECAB Installations have a proven record:

  • During Storm Ophelia the ECAB was recorded performing as predicted in the MaREI laboratory
  • The other ECAB installations, throughout the country, have all proven themselves
  • In Kilbegnet, near Gory, Co. Wexford, ECAB again proved itself, while unprotected sections of the beach suffered during Storm Eleanor
