Innovative Floating Systems for Urban Waterways
River Cycleway Europe (RCE), a design innovation company established in Dublin, Ireland, addresses some of the most significant social and environmental challenges faced by 21st century cities today. River Cycleway Europe (RCE) takes the lead by introducing carbon-neutral innovations in sustainable infrastructure for water-based transport systems, affordable housing and localized clean energy generation.
Our vision began by exploring ways to make cycling and walking an enjoyable, hazard-free, transport option and to protect the health of both people and the planet.
