ARC Marine Ltd is an award-winning eco-engineering company dedicated to accelerating reef creation on a global scale using innovative eco-friendly building materials.

ARC Marine offers unique eco-friendly marine construction products with complimentary engineering and scientific services to provide our clients across a broad range of industries with fit for purpose accelerated reef solutions that support the growing and vitally important blue economy.

Every project impacting the marine environment now has the potential to actually enhance the capacity of the ocean to support sustainable fish stocks by embracing the simple concept of using Reef Cubes® to create new artificial reefs that in a very short time will become a robust incubator for all endemic marine species.

Reef Cubes® provide a real opportunity for eco-responsible companies and individuals to genuinely enhance the marine environment in a sustainable way to leave a positive legacy for future generations.
The building blocks to saving our oceans

In an effort to restore the tragic state the human race has left our oceans, we decided to knuckle down and dedicate a huge amount of our time and research in coming up with a new and innovative solution, in an effort to rectify some of these ever-growing issues.

The result is Reef Cubes®.

Reef Cubes® are hollow and stackable made entirely out of an eco-friendly concrete mixture with the addition of sustainable reinforcement to ensure they last indefinitely with a positive effect to the oceans. A dovetail keying system was later added to the Reef Cubes® in an effort to make them almost ‘Lego-like’, creating infinite possibilities by stacking formations and creating a dense, complex marine ecosystems which can be tailored for specific species.

Available in 1m3, 0.5m3 and 0.25m3, they are perfect for various applications including scour and cable protection around offshore wind turbines, pipeline and oil rig protection, coastal defence, eco- tourism, anti-trawling deterrents for MPA’s/MCZ’s and establishing underwater reef systems where natural reef has been destroyed.

Our patented moulding system can be shipped anywhere around the world, allowing us to manufacture close to deployment which not only saves on transport costs and CO2 emissions but integrates a local supply chain to provide raw materials.
