Fisherman's Mexico

 

Product:         Geotube® Marine Structures Technology

Application:   Breakwaters


Location:       Fisherman's, Playa Carr, Mexico

Installation:   2006

 

The Challenge:

After Hurricane Wilma, the property owners needed an effective method to rebuild their decimated beachfront.

The Solution:

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.

The Results:

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.
