Earth retaining solutions
The Reinforced Earth® solution is renowned for secure technical and operational benefits while offering sustainable properties, substantial economic efficiency, and minimal construction duration. This solution is proven to be ideal for industrial, public, private, commercial, and recreational users for the construction of safe waterfronts and breakwaters. The use of GeoStrap® geosynthetic soil reinforcement in combination with a polymeric connection, or in some cases using high-adherence steel strip soil reinforcements allows for Reinforced Earth® structures to be flexible and adapt with ease for exposure to adverse hydraulic conditions.
Our patented techniques and tailor-made solutions like GeoMega® MSE Retaining Walls are primarily built to resist the combined forces of water and waterborne debris which can be highly destructive during storms, as well as other environmental stresses such as waves and storm driven pack ice. Wall facings of our MSE walls for ports, harbors and costal structures can be designed with integrated functional features such as wave deflectors and eco-friendly surfaces that support bio-habitats.
Our MSE walls for ports, harbors and costal structures can be built with a waterproofing membrane attached to the claddings to create watertight structures.
T-Wall™ precast concrete gravity walls are also excellent fits for the construction of MSE walls for ports, harbors and costal structures.
Scour and erosion protection
Ports and harbors are prone to wave currents and turbulent flows. These currents and turbulences lead to soil erosion which in the long run may lead to damage to the structure. GeoMega® is a durable solution for these types of instances. Reinforced Earth® is a high-strength MSE wall specially developed for protective applications.
