Product: Geotube® Marine Structures Technology
Application: Island Creation
Location: Buena Ventura, Columbia
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.
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].
