The market for coastal and marine structures and slope stabilisation

Sedimentary retention for beaches and coastal structures

Sedimentary retention for beaches and coastal structures

- Formation of a geocarpet via the Géocorail® process
- After a few months, the precipitation of the ions in the seawater creates a conglomerate of sediments

    Slope stabilisation of the shoreline by fixing of substrate and reinforcement of geotextiles

    Slope stabilisation of the shoreline by fixing of substrate and reinforcement of geotextiles

    The Géocorail® fitted with drains collects the draining geotextile positioned under the rip-rap in order to protect it from shearing by the swell
