River and Flood

At Ocean Global, we have an impressive portfolio of products catering to hydraulic engineering and coastal protection. We have significant expertise, skill, and manufacturing technology to provide bespoke solutions for various projects. Strong river currents and heavy rainfall often wreak havoc and dislodge soil particles from riverbanks. At undesired locations, it leads to weakening of river slopes and embankments, and a threat of floods. The geosynthetics at Ocean Global cater to all primary functions of separation, filtration, drainage, reinforcement, barrier, containment, and protection. They are used as filters, sealing elements, and scour protection in flowing waters.


River and Estuary work

Gabion mattresses and gabion walls provide scour protection and prevent soil erosion along embankments.

Breakwaters, Groynes, and Seawalls

Structures like groynes, breakwaters, and seawalls prevent erosion. Geotextile containers are the geosynthetic solutions here. Not only are they more feasible and economical, but they are environmentally friendly as well.

Shoreline Embankments

The use of geosynthetics in embankments is manifold. Geobags with multiple types of infills are an excellent solution as shoreline embankments. The durability, permeability, flexibility, and high endurance to environmental conditions make them ideal for protecting shoreline structures as well. When filled with concrete, they provide significant protection to shoreline structures against water forces.

Coastal Erosion control

Geobags or geotextile sand containers function as artificial reefs and also artificial dunes. The nonwoven geotextiles can handle the installation stress, and high abrasion resistance and elongation capacity efficiently take on wave impact, preventing coastal erosion. Along with geotextile sand containers or geobag flood barriers, erosion control mats provide stabilization and reinforcement.
