Seafloatech unveils a revolutionary solution for port and marinas
Seafloatech unviels a revolutionary solution for the development of port and marinas at IMBC
One of the more relevant innovations and investable opportunities in the sailing industry, Seafloatech Pod will be shown at at the International Marina and Boatyard Conference (IMBC) in Florida.
Taking place in Fort Lauderdale from January 14th to 16th, IMBC is geared specifically toward marina and boatyard owners; operators. Facility managers, industry consultants, dock masters; harbourmasters boat builders and repairers are also catered for.
Marine professionals gathering
IMBC is where dedicated marine professionals gather to exchange information, talk about the future of the industry and get down to business.
The Seafloatech POD is connected to sea, lake and riverbeds using an ecological system (anchors, screws, sealing). It consists of a mast articulated at its base, which pistons in its upper part to minimise the effects of the tide.
Allowing the construction of floating structures as collective moorings, artificial beaches, restaurants, housing, Seafloatech Pod can also be applied for industrial and military uses.
The Pod has been developed as an ecological technology because it has no impact on the fauna and flora. It is totally reversible and easy to install or remove, stabilising the surface module whatever it is and reducing the turning radius by 55%.
Low ecological footprint
Designed, tested and perfected by Seafloatech Pod the bottom / float interface systems offer a very low ecological footprint. They are totally reversible and offer users exceptional safety and comfort.
Because of this, it won the “MARIN HIGH-TECH Trophy for Innovation 2019” and “Coup de Coeur Trophy” in the Innovation Competition at the Paris Boat Show 2019.
The traditional way of construction requires a significant financial investment for the renovation of the marinas and ports and has a direct impact on the quality of life of local communities due to the literal destruction of sea soil and coasts.
Sustainability is undoubtedly reshaping the world around us, not only as a new sensibility for the protection of the environment but for being cost effective and a sensible opportunity of business. An increasing number of investors integrate sustainability performance data on their capital allocation decisions.
