Many maritime structures were built well over 30 years ago, which in many cases exceeds their original design life. These are critical infrastructures that are expensive to maintain while exposed to a harsh environment. They often need to be rehabilitated to extend their service life or upgraded to keep up with changing vessels capabilities.


  • Berthing facilities
    Container terminals
    Dry bulk terminals
    Oil and gas jetties
    Cruise terminals
    Navy terminals
  • Dry docking facilities
    Shipbuidling yards, etc.
  • Coastal protection structures
    Sea wall structures
    Berth heads structures
    Jetty structures, etc.

Main use cases

01. Refurbishment

General refurbishment of concrete and steel structures

02. Modernisation of the ships' wharf

Increase in berthing capacity: length extension, deck enlargement, increase in vessel loads, etc.

03. Modernisation of gantries

Strengthening of the structures so that they can withstand the stronger reactions of a more powerful gantry crane.

04. Life extension

Extending the life of structures from 30 to 50 years in a marine environment.
