Product: Geotube® Marine Structures Technology
Location: Fisherman's, Playa Carr, Mexico
After Hurricane Wilma, the property owners needed an effective method to rebuild their decimated beachfront.
Geotube® containers were used as breakwaters and groynes to counteract the relentless wave action. This allowed the sand to replenish on the beach. More than 1,000 linear feet of 45' circumference Geotube® units were used for this project.
This restoration project was a success. In less than eight months, more than 90 feet of beach was reclaimed. And neighboring resort properties also decided to use Geotube® technology to replenish their beachfronts.
