Abstract

Although the importance, sediment siltation represents a very critical barrier for the operability of the harbor of Rodi Garganico (Italy). Due to negative economic impact, in fact, traditional dredging results an unviable solution. For this purpose, an innovative solution, called the “ejector”, is proposed for the specific case. Based on several positive applications in Italy, in fact, many positive benefits are expected in addition to the maintenance of the basin depth. Therefore, after a brief outlook of the current conditions in the harbor of Rodi Garaganico, the paper gives some technical specifications regarding the technology and the preliminary considerations that were following for the plant design.
