With FRP composites becoming the material of choice for standard waterfront products like piles, sheet piling, and camels, the owners and engineers of waterfront structures are finding new applications where FRP provides the same great solution for corrosion resistance and long life. Often there are special performance requirements that the design flexibility of FRP is the critical feature to solving the problem.
Starting with the performance requirements, CCG draws on its innovative experience to design, build, and test first-of-its-kind applications. Highlighting some of these applications show how CCG can deliver the right solution for your product or project.
