THE MEDIA VOICE OF THE GLOBAL MARINA INDUSTRY

Boosting sustainability with the WRF

Marinetek has formed a partnership with the Water Revolution Foundation (WRF).

WRF is a Netherlands-based public benefit organisation that focuses on driving sustainability in the superyacht industry through collaboration and innovation, leading the way towards neutralising its ecological footprint and preserving the world’s precious oceans.
Marinetek is the first pontoon and floating solutions provider to partner with WRF and its first goal is to speed up its research in reducing the CO2 emissions of its concrete pontoons – both in terms of materials selected and the production methods used.
In the longer term, Marinetek will be studying how to build marinas with floating pontoons and breakwaters which have minimal effects on the marine environment and, hopefully, even have positive effects on marine biodiversity.
The company is currently looking to reduce the CO2 emissions related to its concrete pontoons by searching for ways to replace the cement used in concrete and the galvanised steel used in pontoon reinforcements. It is also changing the lights in its facilities to LED to reduce the use of electricity, and switching to green energy sources to further reduce its carbon footprint.
