FLOATING PONTOONS’ USES AND APPLICATIONS:

Climate change is affecting not only people who live in coastal areas but also villages and agricultural businesses in low, flood-prone areas. The best and most economical way to save thousands of lives and goods is to use prefabricated pontoons for houses and buildings.

Floating pontoons can be tailor-made to serve the purposes of specific projects. They can be used as floating foundations for houses, healthcare centers, schools and even barns to save thousands of heads of cattle. These floating elements can also be used to transport animals from one island to another.

According to many reliable studies carried out by scientists all over the world, global sea level will rise 2 meters by 2100.

This irreversible process – which has already started – affects every river that flows into the sea and will have devastating effects on coastal habitats and populations worldwide.

SOLID TECHNOLOGICAL BACKGROUND:

Carlos A. Gschwind is an expert from Argentina with over thirty-six-year-long experience in the study, development and manufacturing of ferrocement products. Ferrocement is currently being widely used to build thousands of boats and pontoons worldwide.

In June 2015, Mr. Gschwind was invited to give a lecture at the 11th International Symposium on Ferrocement, held at the University of Aachen in Germany. Before experts from all over the world, he spoke about his over three-decade work building pontoons, swimming pools, culverts and coastal defenses, among other products, out of ferrocement.

Marinas made from ferrocement to build quays and/or floating docks.
