PURLoc Composite Seawalls
PURLoc™ Composite Seawalls are light-weight, high-strength, extremely durable, and easy to drive. PURLoc is a product of Gulf Synthetics LLC. There is no need to consider steel, vinyl or concrete alternatives when you want the best solution for your project.
Aqua-Barrier / WIPP Systems
Water management and control is a significant problem (1) during construction and (2) during flooding events. Hydrological Solutions, Inc. in the manufacturer of these innovative products that solve water retention problems in a cost-effective, innovative manner. This system is manufactured by Hydrological Solutions, Inc.
Pearson Composite Pilings
Pearson Composite Pilings are today’s preferred building material for waterfront foundations, docks, piers and bridges. Pearson composite pilings are stronger than wood, steel or concrete pilings, and because they will not rust, rot or crumble, they will last virtually forever. Containing no chemical preservatives that leach into the water, Pearson sustainable fiberglass composite pilings are environmentally friendly and are the choice of “green” developers of clean marinas and waterfront properties.
Insta-Tank™ containers are made from a heavy-duty, reinforced vinyl for containment of water. They are available in many sizes and can be used moving water via truck or for ground level installation. They are compact and lightweight allowing for easy storage, moving, and deployment. This system is manufactured by Hydrological Solutions, Inc.
Spil-Stop™ prevents spills from contaminants. They are available in several heights and lengths to meet many needs. This system is manufactured by Hydrological Solutions, Inc.
Petrobras Terminal Solimoes - Brazil
Stabilization of the Amazon River embankment was required to protect a multi-million dollar asset of Petrobras. River-water elevation fluctuates 20 meters between wet and dry seasons. Design guidance using concrete filled Presto Geoweb® was provided by Daniel Senf.

Zarumilla River Stabilization - Tumbes, Peru
The Zarumilla River separates Ecuador and Peru. The Peruvian side had severe erosion and was stabilized with a flexible concrete slab which was produced by filling the Geoweb cellular confinement system with concrete. Engineering assistance was provided through Andex del Norte S.A. of Peru and general support by Daniel Senf.
