Coastal Protection Barriers

Geosynthetic Containers  -

An alternative solution for coastal protection or

temporary marine structures.

There is a noticeable trend in the market towards sustainable development, and an increasing demand for structures to be designed and constructed using alternative, sustainable methods.

Geosynthetic Containers have been used as an alternative, sustainable solution for coastal protection for more than 50 years. They have a smaller footprint and lesser impact on the environment than hard structures, such as rock and concrete, and are fabricated using specially engineered materials, to meet durability and environmental requirements.

Geosynthetic Containers also have proven to be time and cost saving, easy to install and remove for a variety of shoreline, onshore and offshore projects.


Geosynthetic Containers


Geosynthetic Containers are mainly used as an alternative solution for coastal protection or temporary marine structures.

Where Geosynthetic Containers are selected as the most effective method, the containers are designed and custom-made for each project. With varying sizes, the containers range from 100 kilograms to over 600 tonnes. The weight provides stability and projects have been designed and constructed in high wave energy coastal areas with waves over 12 meters.

The design and installation of structures using Geosynthetic Containers is a specialized field, one which our contracting division - Ecocoast Contracting LLC - is at the forefront of. Ecocoast was responsible for the first sand-filled megacontainer installation in the United Arab Emirates in 2007.

We now have over 20 years experience in this field, and have been (custom) designing and installing these structures as an alternative, sustainable method for coastal protection in various countries across the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

We can boldly say that we are recognized as the trusted, local partner to offer the best custom engineered solution. In addition, we guarantee the best lead time in the market.
