MARINE ECO-ENGINEERING
RESEARCH & TESTING FOR A BETTER SOLUTION
Our mission is to enhance the way we interact with the marine environment to benefit people and the planet. We understand that as a species we need to grow and take up more space which means utilising the ocean for its resources.

Whether it’s constructing offshore renewable energy sites, expanding on current oil and gas projects or maximising the efficiency of aquaculture farms, we aim to make your impact on the ecosystem as minimal as possible. In fact, we want to give back more than we displace so the blue economy will keep on giving for generations to come!

For us, our work is our passion. As a group of young professionals we dedicate our lives to creating the world’s largest, most comprehensive accelerated natural reef growth network throughout the world.

REEF CUBES®
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.
