Company Profile

CAMERI collaborates with engineers, entrepreneurs, contractors and environmental institutes in the design and regulatory process of coastal and off-shore engineering projects. CAMERI researches possible implications of manmade structures, systems and facilities on the environment and assists decision makers to determine the feasibility of the project, while examining the available solutions.
Among our clients there are government, ministries, municipalities, the Israel Port Company, the Israel Electricity Company, environmental agencies, designers, etc. both local and foreign.


CAMERI was founded in 1975, and is equally owned by the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology (IIT) and the Israel Ports Development and Assets Company. Ever since its establishment, CAMERI has played a major role in consultancy, modeling and decision making in the national planning and design of marine engineering projects.


Our team is comprised of civil and mechanical engineers, researchers and technicians; trained both in Israel and internationally, specializing in hydrodynamics, water resources and environmental engineering, and have some previous field experience in large scale maritime construction projects.


CAMERI is backed up by state-of-the-art equipment: indoor facilities include a wave basin and a 45 meters long flume with irregular wave generators, and a wave channel towing equipment for craft behavior modeling and testing.

Measurements and Database

CAMERI operates Directional Waverider Buoys at Haifa and Ashdod, provides directional continuously measurements at these places since 1992, and holds the major processed database of wave climate along the Israeli coast.


Physical Modeling

  • 2D flume including towing channel for stability, overtopping, towing tests, etc.
  • 3D basin for quays, breakwaters, mooring tests, etc.

Numerical Modeling

  • Water flow in coastal waters and seas, channels, ponds, etc.
  • Cooling water circulation at sea, brine disposal at coastal sites, contaminant transport, sediment transport morph dynamics coastline evolution, etc.
  • Wave shoaling (linear and nonlinear) and near shore wave transformation.
  • Harbor agitation.

Data analysis

  • Statistical analysis of wave, current, wind, tide data (short- and long-term statistics, extreme events).
  • Analysis of bottom sediment (e.g. grain size distribution).
