Geotextile tubes and bags are growing in popularity in the Virgin Islands for use as breakwaters, erosion control, Hurricane Storm Protection control and silt barriers. In the Virgin Islands, GeoTextile Tubes and Bags can replace dredging cells to hold dredged spoils. This material can then be deployed to restore beaches or create land mass, protected dams and levees, create breakwaters or groins and more. Also being used in the Virgin Islands is our Formed Fabric Concrete Products. Fabric Formed Concrete can be used for erosion control, sloped embankment reinforcement, protecting breakwaters, replacing rip rap, underwater cable protection and wave action displacement. Cost effectiveness is high for Virgin Islands dredging or erosion control systems.

GeoTextile Tubes and Bags are used Hurricane Storm Protection in the Virgin Islands as coastal protection, turbidity control and breakwaters because they are highly effective but cost less than older methods. Virgin Islands' breakwaters can be created from dredged spoils pumped into geotextile tubes onsite, and stacked for greater width and height. For even more protection, these geotextile tubes can be armored with fabric formed concrete mattresses called articulating block, and will last as long as a rip rap breakwater. Cities in Virgin Islands include Anna's Retreat and Charlotte Amalie in St. Thomas, Cruze Bay in St. John, and Grove Place, Frederiksted and Christiansted in St. Croix.

Beach Renourishment and Land Reclamation in Virgin Islands has fast become a popular application for GeoTextile tubes and bags. Geotextile tubes and bags can be filled hydraulically from a dredge with the dredging spoils and left to dewater. The remaining material, mostly sand, can be then used to create new beaches or restore existing beach areas., or even exported. Virgin Island's project managers are also using geotextile tubes for silt barriers and turbidity curtains.

Virgin Island projects can also benefit from our Fabric Formed Concrete Systems such as Articulating Block and Enviromat Concrete Linings. Our fabric formed concrete systems will outperform older methods of erosion control. These system are easy to install and cost less then other methods, while providing superior protection.We offer the Virgin Islands products such as Enviromat Concrete Linings, Filter Band and Filter Point Concrete Linings, GeoMatrix Polyester Geogrids, and Uniform Section Concrete Linings and Subsea Systems for cable protection and wave action deferment.
