Marine structures post-tensioning: What is at stake?

Prestressed concrete is an efficient technology for offshore projects. Marine structures are subjected to an aggressive environment including salt water, wind and waves. The use of prestressed concrete enables the creation of a more durable structure as it offers greater protection against corrosion.

Prestressing also allows significant savings as it can reduce the amount of construction materials required and shorten the construction time – a crucial factor given the unpredictable weather offshore.
