Marine Remediation

Effective Containment for Large and Small-Scale Projects

TenCate Geotube® industrial fabrics deliver solutions for marine remediation.  From our complete product line for the dewatering market, we offer materials that contain and dewater marine sediment in rivers, bays, harbors, marinas, ports, dock facilities, and other waterways.  These areas have been collecting contaminated sediments from industrial runoff for many years.  In many cases, these sediments pose significant environmental hazards, and remediation is a difficult and expensive task.  In the past, routine dredging was required to remove the contaminated sediments.  These sediments then had to be disposed of properly in landfills.  Transportation and disposal costs were high due to the amount of water generated in the dredging operation. 

Now, by using TenCate Geotube® dewatering technology, the task of marine remediation can be accomplished at or very near the site by utilizing a dewatering basin where TenCate Geotube® containers can be stacked on top of one another to maximize space.  The contaminated sediments are removed first through hydraulic or mechanical dredging and then pumped directly into the TenCate Geotube® containers.

TenCate Geotube® units can be sized for large-scale or smaller applications, and effectively contain even hazardous materials, reducing their volume dramatically and saving thousands in disposal costs.
