Project Details:

Located in Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh, the Namami Gange Project presented a unique challenge that Ocean Non Wovens Pvt Ltd was ready to tackle head-on. The requirement was to provide a robust solution for riverbank protection, preventing erosion and ensuring the longevity of the project’s objectives. Our innovative product, the Gabion Box (Double Twisted Wire Mesh), proved to be the ideal choice.

Gabion Box (Double Twisted Wire Mesh):

A Gabion Box is a structure crafted from double twisted wire mesh panels, filled with stones or aggregates. This ingenious creation serves as a formidable barrier against erosion while promoting natural water filtration and fostering an environment conducive to aquatic life. The Gabion Box’s versatility and durability made it the perfect fit for the Namami Gange Project.

The Gabion Box (Double Twisted Wire Mesh) acts as a protective shield, preventing soil erosion and ensuring the stability of riverbanks. It allows for natural water flow while retaining soil particles, minimizing sedimentation and maintaining the integrity of the riverbed. Its porous structure facilitates groundwater recharge and aids in the establishment of vegetation, restoring the ecological balance of the river.

Just like a secret agent guarding the river’s secrets, our Gabion Boxes stand strong, shielding the riverbanks from the onslaught of erosion. With their double-twisted wire mesh and stone-filled cores, they embody the perfect balance of strength and beauty. Witness the magic unfold!
