Island Creation

Making Land Rise From the Sea

TenCate Geotube® containment technology has been used for many ambitious projects, but perhaps none as bold as creating entirely new land. TenCate Geotube®  technology has been used for island creation because of its ease of installation, ruggedness, and cost-effectiveness.

Miles of TenCate Geotube® containers can be used to produce durable shorelines then can be filled in behind the units to produce stable land for building.  Skyscrapers have been constructed on property reclaimed from the sea by using TenCate Geotube® technology.

TenCate Geotube® containers can be stacked several high to produce the elevation necessary for backfilling and land creation.  The containers can then be covered with rip rap, sand, or other soil to hide them and produce natural looking shorelines. 

For additional information on the use of TenCate Geotube® containment technology for an Islands Creation application, please contact your TenCate Market Manager.  They will be glad to discuss your next containment project.
