FlexBase BV is a company with more than 8 years of experience in designing and building floating and amphibious structures.

Concepts

The basic concept consists of EPS (Styrofoam) and when necessary concrete. The EPS is covered with a coating to prevent deformation. There are three different systems:
- FlexBase Light
- FlexBase
- FlexBase Heavy
The starting point of the concepts is that they are built directly on the water so in terms of shape and size it can be realized regardless of the circumstances such as locks or bridges. In addition, the concept is unsinkable with a high level of buoyancy and is recyclable. Last but not least it doesn’t need any maintenance. All concepts can also be applied as an amphibious solution!

Environment

Regarding the environment, the EPS is non-toxic and totally inert. EPS does not decompose and it provides, therefore, lifetime durability, the moisture pickup over 30 years is measured at a maximum of 5-6 %. The material can be recy...

Realized

Several successful floating projects have been realized in total 5000 m². After the floating Greenhouse (900 m²) at Flora Holland in Naaldwijk, an innovative success, there are built several other projects. Floating office (450m ²) in Amsterdam, a floating maintenance building (430 m²) in Kalimantan, Indonesia, a floating bird island (1000 m²) in Rotterdam and of course the floating conference center "Floating Pavilion" (880 m² + 575 m²) also in Rotterdam. A floating floor for growing crops with a surface of 600 m² has been realized in Boskoop.
International we have constructed floating foundations in the Philippines and Bangladesh. Last year we did a study on floating solar for Singapore.
