Land Reclamation

Innovative System Solutions for Perimeter Dikes

Geosynthetic products facilitate construction in water and waterside areas. The erosion-resistant containment of fill materials simplifies and speeds up the erection of dams and dikes under the action of wave and current loads. Apart from the short-term benefits of "sustainable containment“, the filter-stable construction also enhances the long-term stability of the structure.
