Geotube® for Marine & Shoreline

Geotube® Containers in Marine Engineering

Geotube® geocontainment technology is used as an integral component in the design and construction of a variety of marine and hydraulic engineering structures such as breakwaters, levies, and marine spoil containment structures. Geotube® geocontainment technology is easy to install beneath the water surface, in difficult conditions, and once in place, provide continued performance.
Features and benefits:

  • Soil Containment
    In marine applications, Geotube® geocontainment technology serves as a containment device enabling placement of fill and spoil materials on the seabed in an orderly and controlled manner. Geotube® geocontainment technology prevent the loss of contained fill and spoil material. Submerged structures, such as breakwaters, groynes, and spoil-containment areas can be cost-effectively constructed using this technique.
  • Shore Stabilization
    Geotube® geocontainment technology is used in the construction of hydraulic filled geotextile tubes which serve as various shoreline stabilization structures. While containing the hydraulic fill, Geotube® brand containers also give shape to the resulting structure. These structures are highly flexible and very economical since they utilize locally dredged materials.
  • Breakwaters
    Geotube® geocontainment technology can also be used as a filter at the base of rubble-mound breakwaters. In this location, Geotube® brand containers prevent the erosion of the foundation soil through the granular layers in the breakwater. In some instances, the geotextile tube may also be required to reinforce the base of the breakwater when it is constructed on soft foundation soils.
