The Hydraulic Engineering Research Institute under the State Academy of Sciences has developed a new type of Shepherd Hill Energy Dissipator (SHED), which can raise the wave damping rate by 40 to 50% as compared to the existing concrete parts.

It ensures stability of structures while lowering the height of breakwaters in such coastal structures as harbour and tidal power station and reducing building costs.

The SHED proved its worth in several projects, including the breakwater construction for the Koam-Tapchon railway crossing the rough sea in Sokjon Bay in the East Sea of Korea.
