TenCate Geotube® GT1000 Construction of Artificial Island - Incheon Grand Bridge, Korea

The Incheon Grand Bridge project is a Megabridge project connecting Incheon International Airport with Songdo City in the Incheon Free Economic Zone. As an alternative to constructing the bridge piers over open water using heavy marine equipment, it was proposed to construct an artificial island reclaimed from the sea as a temporary platform to facilitate construction of the piers using land based equipment. The artificial island option was shown to be significantly more economical than alternatives such as sheet piles, rock dykes, etc.
