AD Ports Group & Archireef deploy Eco Sea Wall Panels in Abu Dhabi

by Madaline Dunn

AD Ports Group and nature-tech company Archireef have announced the deployment of Eco Sea Wall Panels at two locations in Abu Dhabi, Al Aliah Ferry Terminal and Saadiyat Marina and Ferry Terminal.

The two shared that the panels, made from nature-based materials, including oyster shell powder, aim to attract marine biodiversity back to shorelines that have undergone development works.

The installation of the panels at the two sites is conducted in partnership with Abu Dhabi Maritime and supported by an AED 100 million R&D fund launched by ADQ. 

Commenting on the collaboration, David Gatward, Chief Engineering & Technical Services Officer, AD Ports Group, said: “Our innovative collaboration with Archireef represents a strategic step towards enhancing marine ecosystems and is in line with AD Ports Group’s broader environmental objectives and our commitment to ecological preservation. Notably, AD Ports Group has implemented significant environmental initiatives for the preservation of the natural environment, including one of the largest coral relocation and conservation projects at Khalifa Port.”

Deniz Tekerek, Chief Commercial Officer at Archireef and co-inventor of the Eco Sea Wall Panels, added: “We have always seen ourselves as a ‘reef-to-shore’ company that works on marine ecosystems beyond coral reefs. With these Eco Sea Wall Panels, we have been able to apply our experience in eco-engineering and marine science to an ecosystem that’s adjacent to coral reefs.”
