Water system maintenance costs
High level water system expenditure.
Each year, in the Netherlands, thousands of kilometres of wooden shoring are replaced. The annual amount of hardwood required for this is equivalent to a forest with the size of a medium-sized city such as Delft. In addition, wood prices are rising and pressure on government budgets is increasing. With an increasing call for environmentally friendly products and a circulair economy.
To maintain the capacity of the waterways they need dredging approximately once every 10-20 year.
The GEOWALL is a robust shoring made from compressed dredging sludge. Soil from the bank or sludge from the waterbed is excavated and mixed with a binding agent. A press then forms the wall element. This makes the GEOWALL both a sustainable and cost-effective alternative to current timbering.
