 Since 2014, the beach managed by Pierre&Vacances' Group in Saint-Anne is protected by an immerged STABIPLAGE®.

This STABIPLAGE® allows breaking the waves and keeping the beach: 10 meters on its width and 120 meters on its length.

 Shellfishes and algae cover the STABIPLAGE® structure: it is a support for the biodiversity.

 Pierre&Vacances found the use of a second beach for their customers.



Spring 2016: official opening of the Pierre & Vacances Guadeloupian Resort's beach.This beach, designed and created by Espace Pur in collaboration with Guadeloupian companies, had disappeared few years ago and is now restored thanks to: 1 submerged STABIPLAGE® + a beach nourishment.= 10 meters wide on 120 meters long.

From 17th to 21st June : Béatrice CORNIC was at Jeanne d'Arc Mission in Vietnam.


On the 11th June, Espace Pur was at the 9th congress of French-Vietnamese decentralized cooperation in Brest.

STABIPLAGE® technology was presented through the Loc An project.

January 2009

Along with the big storm in France that occurred at the end of the month of January, a notable witness, team member of the Town Council, has reported that « Some photos of our STABIPLAGE® groins, taken today [23 January 09] show how ... splendid they are; almost all are at their maximum level. The strong wind coming from the West allowed the top of the beach to be filled ... The space between the last 2 works of 50 meters, laid last weeks, is full and the level between the last work of 80 m and the one of 50m is higher.»

March 2008 - Strong storms on French brittany coast: STABIPLAGE® plays its role as protector.

If the dune line has been particularly affected - collapsed in several places, the zones protected by the STABIPLAGE® proved to be much more resistant.

(see French press articles )
In the articles issued in French local newspapers, the lines in pink mean:
- DAMGAN site : " [ What you can see over there ] are the STABIPLAGE® works -a system that allows to decrease
the strengh of the waves when they come and smash on the coast", explains Yves Toudic,
in charge of the Technical Department of Damgan city.

The hide tide factor was 106.

LOCTUDY site: It has to be noted that the STABIPLAGE® works have played their role as they have maintained the sand on the beach.

Strong Storms on Brittany coast - France: STABIPLAGE® plays its role of protector

Having being announced by French Weather forecast and subject of the broadcasting of an alert report of orange level (on March 7th) from the Channel littoral to the Atlantic Loire estuary, violent tempests beat down on the Atlantic coasts, creating considerable damages on the coastal fringe. According to the naval prefecture in Brest, winds of 110km/h were recorded on the coastal region from the survey of day March 9th
as well as waves of 6-metre height out at sea.

Unfortunately, the conjunction of a strong coefficient of high tide (106)
during the open sea reinforced the destructive potential of these events.

STABIPLAGE ® protects dune lines and stakes of Damgan and Plobannalec – Brittany coast - France:

On the zone of Plobannalec-Loctudy-Lesconil (Dpt.29), if the dune line was particularly affected - collapsed in several places, the zone protected by STABIPLAGE® (5 works established at right angles of the coastline) proved to be much more resistant, as the works have in fact stabilized the sand on the beach and protected the dune line as well as rear zones.

On the coastal facade of the village of Damgan (Dpt.56), it is the man made wall of the seafront that collapsed; numerous roads were cut and many houses flooded.

Yves TOUDIC, representative for the Technical Services of the city of Damgan, specifies having never seen such phenomenon in 13 years. Therefore, it has to be noted that STABIPLAGE® played its role on the zone it protects, stabilizing the sand of the beach and allowing the attenuation of the incident waves, restricting thus their destructive impact.

These examples and evidence illustrate well that
it is not always the most "massive" or the "heaviest" works that protect most efficiently,
contrary to received ideas!

February 2008

The concept STABIPLAGE ® protects throughout the world. It captures and retains the volume of sediments

necessary for the protection of the coasts and this is realized in a friendly way without artificial inputs.
