Project Description

Rivers and waterways around the world are essential assets to be maintained and preserved. The valleys opened by rivers frequently provide way for roads and railways which have to be built to allow a safe traffic of people and freight whatever the condition of the rivers might be. Waterways constitute vital links between communities and they allow sustainable transportation means to be used. Rivers, waterways and also lakes, can play a key role in land development. Drawing on their global expertise and track record, Terre Armée entities worldwide bring tailor-made solutions and provide support at all stages of the projects, fulfilling the demanding requirements of rivers and waterways hydraulic applications. The Terre Armée Group delivers best-fit solutions and provides end-to-end support in projects that need to conform to the specific requirements for structures built alongside rivers and waterways:

  • River walls
  • Bridges
  • Canals
  • Quays, jetties and marinas

Benefits

Flexibility

Flexibility

The wide choice of our Reinforced Earth® steel or synthetic soil reinforcement materials allows to provide an ideal solution for structures placed in all kinds of conditions, whether fresh, brackish, or saline water.

Designed to resist

Designed to resist

Our  Reinforced Earth® river structures are designed to resist the combined forces of water and waterborne debris. Built to withstand strong currents, storms, and floods, which can be highly destructive to other types of structures, Reinforced Earth®is a safe choice.

Waterproof

Waterproof

When watertightness is necessary, our GeoMega® system with GeoStrap® or EcostrapTM synthetic soil reinforcements can be easily combined with a waterproofing membrane, making it ideal for complex structures, such as locks and water saving basins.
