Man-made islands have been used thoughout the world for industrial, commercial, and recreational purposes. PND has used its OPEN CELL SHEET PILE™ (OCSP) system to develop the technology to design offshore, man-made islands in the Arctic, pairing the OCSP with icebreaking structures to fortify existing islands and build new ones. Similar man-made islands can be built all over the world as OCSP technology lends itself to a large variety of soil and environmentally adverse conditions.

PND has also developed an offshore island system which uses its SPIN FIN™ piles. (To read more about SPIN FIN pile technology, click here.)
