Benefits for our partners
“Everyone at ECOncrete is an ocean optimist. Their approach, passion and commitment to sustainable coastal infrastructure is awe-inspiring. We’re proud to be partners and to explore together the possibilities of their COASTALOCK tide pool armor technology. There is an ocean of opportunity out there to grow the Blue Economy, and we are thrilled to join ECOncrete to demonstrate innovative eco-engineering solutions to protect and restore coastal ecosystems.
We are proud to be partnering with ECOncrete® on their latest innovation, COASTALOCK. This nature inspired system is positioned to replace traditional, homogenous rock armored shorelines that are commonplace in ports and harbors with a vibrant and ecologically thriving solution that is very much needed. COASTALOCK hosts a number of benefits that align with many Port priorities including coastal resilience, biological enhancement, and an improved shoreline experience for visitors. Additionally, the installation was completed in partnership with local businesses further supporting the region’s thriving blue economy workforce. We were very excited to see strong signs of biological recruitment within the first three months of its deployment and we are even more excited to see what new marine life moves into the neighborhood.
