Turnkey Waterway Barriers engineered to withstand the toughest conditions.

Read More Our Services

We are an engineering firm with over 45 years of experience designing and installing turnkey waterway barriers.

With over one hundred turn-key installations to date and counting, we are Canada's first choice for dealing with ice, debris, public safety and other types of barriers that are capable of withstanding the toughest conditions.

Turnkey Waterway Barriers

We are an engineering firm that provides turnkey solutions – waterway barriers designed and engineered for its specific purpose and surrounding environmental conditions. Historic data is used to predict worst case scenarios of ice and debris loading, current, and wind. Every component of the boom is individually engineered to resist these forces.

We're hiring!

We are currently looking for 3 people to fill several roles in our firm. Check out our careers page and contact us if you're interested!

What We Do

Turnkey Waterway Barriers engineered to withstand the toughest conditions.
Our solutions are guaranteed.. If it breaks we fix it!

Ice Control

Ice Control

Ice booms form a stable ice cover upstream of hydroelectric dams, reducing frazil ice buildup that can cause costly interruptions and revenue losses.

Debris Management

Debris Management

Debris booms retain or divert floating debris that causes costly power generation losses due to blockage of hydroelectric dam intakes.

Public Safety

Public Safety

Deployed seasonally or year round, safety booms provide a visible boundary to warn boaters and recreational users to keep away from dangerous waters.

Special Projects

Special Projects

Projects that involve special conditions or challenges - for example, ship arrest systems that protect bridges from impacts with large ships.

Bark Lake All Season Safety Boom

In summer of 2006, an All-Season Safety Boom was designed, and constructed upstream of Ontario Power Generation's Bark Lake control dam located on the Madawaska River near Barry's Bay, Ontario.

Tailrace Safety Boom at Chats Falls GS

Past attempts have been made at installing a safety boom across the tailrace channel at Chats Falls GS without much success.

Debris Booms In Arrow Lake

The project consists of the design and supply of all components for a debris boom. The boom is to be installed upstream the canal of Arrow Lake Power Plant.

Debris Booms in James Bay

Two Debris Booms were designed, and constructed in James Bay on the Rupert River upstream of a spillway and a 2.9 km long Transfer Tunnel on the Lemare River.

Diversion Boom in the Ottawa River

Design of a diversion boom on the Ottawa River to protect the Lemieux Island water intake from Frazil.
