Project Description

Terre Armée designs and supplies materials for the construction of groynes and breakwaters.

The need to build groynes and breakwaters is on the rise. For offshore and shoreline stakeholders, these necessary structures protect not only maritime assets and ship-to-shore infrastructure, but also protect and preserve natural shorelines and coastal development that drive local and global economies.

Solutions designed and supplied by Terre Armée are developed to ensure offshore and coastline erosion control, harbor sustainability and landform and infrastructure preservation. For coastal protection, groynes and breakwaters serve different but complementary purposes as far as littoral transport is concerned.

The customized engineered TerraDyke™ solution developed by Terre Armée is particularly well adapted to their construction. This state-of-the-art technique is based on the use of geotextile tubes which constitute the core of the structures. It is a soft solution offering the advantages of geosynthetic materials and locally available fill materials.

TechRevetment™ formed concrete mattresses are an ideal solution for the primary armor layer and the antiscour aprons which can be complemented by anchor tubes. Our TerraTextile™ NW nonwoven geotextiles are essential components to cope with filtration and separation issues.

When basal reinforcement is necessary due to the nature of the foundation soil of the structures, ArmaLynk® and ArmaGrid® geogrids will provide the right answer.

Reinforced Earth®

Reinforced Earth®

Our flagship technique, Reinforced Earth®, is based on the principle of the friction between soil and reinforcements creating a permanent and predictable bond. At the origin of all mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) walls on the market today, we are continuously perfecting this ingenious technique.

TerraLink™

TerraLink™

TerraLink™  is our adaptation of the original Reinforced Earth® technique. Where conventional length of of reinforcements are not possible due to space limitations, linking the Reinforced Earth® system directly to an existing structure creates a structurally sound shored retaining wall.
