Strongwell’s FRP Solutions for Marine Applications

September 17 2018

DURAGRID grating and EXTREN structural FRP shapes have been used to fabricate floating pontoon structures to support heavyweight mechanical pumps for dewatering mines and quarries. The superior weight-to-strength ratios of FRP compared to steel represents significant improvements to platform buoyancy, particularly when mounted with integral equipment. Established steel and concrete arrangements have been used for dewatering applications, but FRP pontoons can offer improved capacity gains and significantly easier construction.

Floating docks constructed using DURAGRID and EXTREN products have also been constructed for water treatment facilities, with suspended platforms designed to accommodate multiple personnel with aerating equipment. This application benefits significantly from the corrosion resistant behavior of FRP, which is practically impervious to water permeation and corrosion via effluent materials. Marine-grade steel is generally resistant to corrosion, but the consistently varying bacterial concentrations of the effluent require material solutions with sturdier resistances to multiple corrosives.

Strongwell has provided a range of fiberglass solutions for bespoke floating structures in the civil, recreational, and academic spaces, including a fiberglass-concrete canoe, a unique floating office, and a range of buoyant platforms for industrial purposes.
