Coastal Protection Barriers

Ecobarrier Geosynthetic Containers  -

An alternative solution for coastal protection or temporary marine structures.

The design and construction of structures using Geosynthetic Containers is a specialized field, one which we are at the forefront of.

Only few companies around the world specialize in this field, and we are proud to be one of them. Ecocoast was responsible for the first sand-filled megacontainer installation in the United Arab Emirates in 2007.

We have over 20 years experience in this field, and have been designing and installing these solutions as an alternative, sustainable method for coastal protection or temporary marine structures in various countries across the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

Ecocoast built a software for stability calculations to assist contractors, engineers and consultants in the tendering process.
