How do we maintain reliable access for our islands’ transportation and logistics channels so that vital resources can be delivered? And how do we maintain operations while providing critical updates to ensure viability for years to come?

As an isolated island chain, Hawaii is disproportionately affected by the state and quality of our ports and utilities. Oceanit understands that when it comes to critical utilities—from harbors and stormwater systems to fiber optics cables and wastewater treatment plants—our focus needs to be on safety, functionality, and reliability above all else.


In dealing with harbors, our engineers conduct thorough topographic and hydrographic surveys, create conceptual designs and viable alternatives, and hold public informational meetings to ensure that all parties affected remain fully informed. Oceanit specializes in dredging, pier installation and replacement, and erosion damage repair.

Our scientists and engineers specialize in thorough investigation, monitoring, and planning and hold these practices at the cornerstone of our approach to utilities engineering. We are frequently called upon as experts when it comes to water testing, environmental best practices, and analysis of long-term environmental and health impacts.
