With already several on-going research and development projects focusing on CO2 emission reductions in products and production, we are putting even more emphasis on environmental sustainability by partnering with Water Revolution Foundation.

Water Revolution Foundation is a Netherlands-based Public Benefit Organization that focuses on driving sustainability in the superyacht industry through collaboration and innovation, leading the way towards neutralizing its ecological footprint and preserving the world’s precious oceans.

Marinetek is the first pontoon and floating solutions provider to partner with Water Revolution Foundation. Our first goal in this partnership is to speed up our research projects to reduce the CO2 emissions of our concrete pontoons – both in materials we use and the production methods and energy used.

In a larger scale, the long-term target for partnering with Water Revolution Foundation is to be part of the solution for healthy oceans that are crucial for the planet’s wellbeing. This will include studies on how to build marinas with floating pontoons and breakwaters with minimal effects on the marine environment and hopefully even with positive effects on marine biodiversity.

In our current sustainability projects, we are looking to reduce the CO2 emissions related to our concrete pontoons by searching for ways to replace the cement used in concrete and the galvanized steel used in the pontoon’s reinforcements. We are also changing the lights at our facilities to LED to reduce the use of electricity and switching to green energy sources to further reduce our carbon footprint.
