Drydocks always prove a challenge for the construction team, working far below water levels while keeping all the materials dry, and the construction teams safe.
There are many different forms of systems that can be used and there is not one Geosynthetic material that fits all.
If you are looking at Erosion control there is a range of considerations from the tidal action you are trying to control down to the usability of the site once completed. One area to watch for is Hydrolysis. There are different polymers used within Geosynthetics, but until recently it was not well known that Hydrolysis occurred with certain polymers. This is accelerated under certain PH levels when using broken concrete or limestone in construction. If unsure please check with one of the Polyfabrics teams and we can guide you through.
Maritime construction comes with additional complications of working underwater while reinforcing the ground and ensuring pressure equalisation occurs. Through the use of a range of high strength work materials and bag structures time can saved and also aid the overall construction.
