Scaling up Great Barrier Reef Coral restoration

The consortium consisting of Van Oord, Australian research institute CSIRO, and Delft University of Technology have reached a new milestone. They proved that specially adapted pumps and tanks are an effective way of collecting coral eggs on a large scale, so they later can be released to settle on the reef. This is an important step towards the rehabilitation of coral reefs. In the next edition of our online magazine more highlights and innovations as we focus on our sustainability programme.
