Marine

Operations

Proudly Serving the gulf coast

Overview

Integris’ Marine Operations experience includes high-tech marine surveying as well as large-scale marine salvage and recovery services.

 

Debris recovery in coastal and inland waterways requires a unique approach, and Integris is pioneering and implementing techniques that few in the industry can offer. By using some of the latest technology, like hyper-sensitive sonar arrays, we have made great strides in underwater surveying, identification, and plotting.

 

The high-tech equipment we use makes our extraction processes more efficient and less harmful to the environment than other methods. Instead of dragging or trawling an entire area, we can now pinpoint and target specific items – from something as small as a soda can to an object as large as an airplane.

 

With a clear picture of what lies beneath the surface, we identify and accurately locate all kinds of objects – from washing machines and refrigerators to furniture and automobiles. We have even located historic wrecks and archeological relics off the Galveston coast and submerged houses in the waters of New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy.

 

Environmental mitigation and rehabilitation work covers a wide span of disciplines. Integris has experience with helping agencies assess and identify the issues facing waterways, wetlands, and other environmentally sensitive geographies. Our team also provides hands-on solutions, both immediate and long-term. We can help you restore wetlands, stave off erosion, or even terraform a new island into existence. We help dredge around and through fragile and protected areas with innovative technologies. Integris provides forward-thinking programs that can last years, e.g. multistage land grafts converting recovered beach areas into vibrant hatcheries and wetlands.

 

As our construction division and environmental teams work together, the results are robust and fantastic. Integris is a unique marine construction firm. We do not approach any singular project as other incumbent marine contractors do. For example, our dredging operations always contain analysis that examines the net impact to the placement area and the consequent rollover into the surrounding ecosystem. We work with the agency having jurisdiction to derive optimal solutions prior to engaging in the base work. Integris takes best practices gleaned from our above-ground work and applies the knowledge to marine construction. When constructing a dam or fortifying submerged structures, Integris will consult with other teams (like general construction) to ensure the best outcome.

Coastal Restoration

Our beaches and shorelines can be reshaped and even destroyed by natural disasters – leveled in a matter of hours, despite years of Mother Nature’s hard work. Inlets can be cut through islands, waterways clogged, and dunelines leveled.

 

Replacing and rebuilding these areas may seem an insurmountable task, but for Integris it has become a crowning achievement. For example, we have moved millions of cubic yards of sand to rebuild miles of protective dunelines in Louisiana and to close inlets in Florida and North Carolina.

 

But beach reclamation isn’t just moving sand from place to place. It often involves collecting, sifting, screening, and reconstructing one of the most delicate eco-systems on earth. We are always sensitive to the impact this process may have on an area and remain ever vigilant to return it to what nature had initially intended.

 

Coastal restoration services provided by Integris include:

 

  • Beach Replenishment
  • Wetlands Restoration
  • Beach Sand Screening & Replacement
  • Oil Spill Cleanup
