Tittle:
Solutions for the restoration and development of marine habitats and for the enhancement of marine biodiversity in degraded or artificialized marine environments
Summary:
The French company provides services in the design, construction and supply of solutions for the restoration and enhancement of marine biodiversity. Applications concern ecological integration of maritime infrastructures, support of fisheries and leisure activities, ecological restoration of damaged marine areas, coastal adaptation to climate change. The company is looking for technological partners to develop new products through research cooperation, services or technical cooperation agreement
Description:
Company goals are to go beyond the control of negative environmental impacts of a construction project in a marine environment, ensuring the pro-activity of the infrastructures, and seizing the benefits associated with their presence at sea, in order to enhance specific ecological functions and marine biodiversity are the goals of the company.

The team applies its cross functional expertise in maritime engineering and marine environment to develop innovative solutions that improve the ecological performance of maritime infrastructures. It valorise years of R-Y-D in this field and has yet performed numerous individual projects or in partnership.

These solutions are defined on a case by case basis, in accordance with the needs of the client and the technical and ecological specificities of each project.

The company team possesses a collection of skills in civil engineering, oceanography, marine biology, hydro-sedimentology, ecological engineering, prefabrication and construction management. All areas are covered, from the design stage to the implementation of the works; including structural calculations, the formulation of specific concretes, regulatory analysis and monitoring surveys.

Services include the: design, the construction and the supply of man-made habitats that enhance the development of marine biodiversity. These solutions can be applied as tools for the ecological integration of maritime infrastructures, the mitigation of adverse effects of construction works or industrial activities on the marine environment, the support of fisheries and leisure activities, the ecological restoration of damaged marine areas, and coastal adaptation to climate change.

Structures developped are of various forms, dimensions and materials. This artificial habitat technology can be applied to artificial reef projects as well as pro-biodiversity add-on equipment for maritime infrastructures such as docks, breakwaters, offshore wind foundations, offshore oil rigs, etc. Products also include customized equipment serving both technical and ecological applications: eco-designed ballast devices, eco-designed breakwater blocks, ... The company also develops biogenic concretes that enhance benthic colonisation of maritime infrastructures.
Advantages and Innovations:
The services and products answer to four major differentiation criteria:
- Biomimicry: designs are inspired from natural habitats and organisms in order to ensure optimal functional efficiency.
- Custom-fit: solutions are specifically designed and dimensioned to fit to a given ecological and technical context. The range of services and cooperation models are also completely adaptable to the clients and partners´ needs: design, calculation, cost optimization, construction, licensing, etc.
- Performance: the company benefits from its SME size in terms of innovation and dynamism and from belonging to a large group in terms of capacity and stability.Optimized turn-key solutions: a full range of services is provided from design to implementation, enabling to develop significant volumes of artificial habitat at an optimized cost.
