For monopole offshore installations, Secutex® Soft Rock sand containers have been used, including GPS support for precise seabed placement. The containers are fabricated from a Secutex® highly robust, staple fibre, needle-punched nonwoven geotextile.
Containers are sewn together and closed after sand filling with a high-performance durable yarn. After sand filling, the container remains flexible and can adapt to variable seabeds. Secutex® Soft Rock offers outstanding long-term stability, a high contact angle of friction, high permeability, and high abrasion resistance.
