Buena Ventura, Columbia

 

Product:         Geotube® Marine Structures Technology

Application:   Island Creation


Location:       Buena Ventura, Columbia

Installation:   2000

 

The Challenge:

The city of Buena Ventura required a dredge spoil disposal site with San Antonia Bay that would contain 600,000 cubic meters of dredge materials from a navigation channel.

The Solution:

Geotube® marine containment technology was used for this island creation project.  1,100 linear meters of Geotube® containers (20 meter circumference x 3 meters tall) were installed to create the perimeter containment for the dredge disposal island [photo 4].
