Marine Structures


Reinforced Earth® is a proven and effective construction material for marine structures such as retaining walls to support coastal highways and riverbanks, bridge abutments along waterways, dock walls, sea walls, earth dams and spillways. Reinforced Earth provides resistance to very severe pressure of water, through waves, tidal actions, storms, ice and vessel collision. For marine applications, the Reinforced Earth technology is adapted for the water environment. In addition to required drainage and filling due to tidal lag on structures, a protective system has been developed to prevent seawater corrosion. Reinforced Earth structures can be rapidly constructed under dry conditions and at low tide. And Reinforced Earth retaining walls can be constructed entirely under water.
