Reefy restores local marine ecosystems by providing habitat and substrate for native marine life.
Reefy creates nature enhancing structures that protect infrastructure by dissipating wave energy.
Reefy has developed the first modular artificial reef that is stable enough to dissipate hurricane force wave energy to protect the coast whilst providing the required substrate and habitat complexity to boost marine biodiversity. This patented innovation in coastal infrastructure is the REB: Reef Enhancing Breakwater.
They keep the structure stable against storm waves and provide a diversity of tunnels, caves, and shelter for important species of the ecosystem.
Eco-blocks are placed between the ReefBlocks and function as a customizable habitat which can be designed for key target species.
Designed surface texture and porosity promotes the settlement of reef-forming organisms, such as corals and oysters to create a living layer that can grow with sea level rise.
The structure has three levels of ecological complexity: macro (the structure as a whole), micro (tunnels and caves), and surface texture. This can host all types of marine life.
The modularity allows the REB to be scalable to any site or project restrictions. By pre-seeding or planting reef building species on the surface we can achieve a stable and resilient living breakwater that can grow with sea-level rise, reducing expensive maintenance and upgrade costs.
