TenCate Geotube® systems are highly effective solutions for coastal and marine construction. Geotube® systems are used for shoreline erosion protection, land reclamation, island creation, wetlands creation, construction platforms, revetments, dykes, groynes and offshore structures.

TenCate Geotube® system involves the fabrication of close-ended tubular containers attached with filling ports at regularly spaced intervals. The Geotube® containers are hydraulically filled with a slurry mix of sand and water and the hydraulic pressure will transport sand along the inside of the tube. Water will dissipate through the permeable engineered fabric, while sand will settle out within the container by gravity. A monolithic structure with compacted sand is formed and used in variety of marine applications.

TenCate Geotube® systems are fabricated using specially engineered woven and composite fabrics in order to meet varying tensile strength, durability and environmental requirements. The fabric can consist of either an engineered woven or a composite geotextile depending on the application requirements. The tubular shaped  Geotube® containers typically range in diameter from 1.5m to 5m.
