GROWING REEFS
PROTECTING COASTLINES

We offer a natural, beautiful, long-term solution to counter increased global coastal erosion. By growing artificial coral reefs faster than in nature, CCell provides coastal protection, enhances marine ecosystems and promotes tourism.

Our Mission


To protect beaches by growing beautiful coral reefs using 100% renewable energy. CCell’s natural solution, with multiple benefits, will transform the traditional coastal protection industry.

We have worked tirelessly to engineer a beautifully simple system that works with nature. Creating a long-term solution, which protects coasts from erosion while enhancing marine ecosystems.

Welcome to our future!

Why


More than 70% of global coastlines are being eroded, with climate change as a major contributing factor.

Thankfully, Coral reefs are an excellent natural protection for coastal regions. They can absorb 97% of the wave energy, and globally they reduce wave heights, on average, by 84%.

Unfortunately, the majority of these valuable ecosystems have died and those that remain are severely at risk. They need our help!

How


We create steel structures which are electrified with a small current that causes seawater minerals to grow around them, forming calcium carbonate rock, very similar to natural reefs.

This technique, which was first pioneered by Dr Wolf Hilbertz, accelerates the formation of reefs, enabling limestone rock that would normally take 100s of years to form, to amass in less than 5 years.

The reefs can be powered using CCell’s patented wave energy technology, or with grid or solar power.

What We Do

Measuring bathymetry, marine life and environmental conditions.

Design

Simulating the impact of differing reef designs on beach nourishment.

Build

Procurement, fabrication and delivery of CCell.

Install

Managing assembly and installation with local contractors.

Operate

Remote monitoring and annual site surveys, with ongoing support.
