Its intrinsic characteristics also make the Reinforced Earth® technology ideally suited to hydraulic structures associated with water transportation, such as quays, jetties and marinas built alongside rivers, waterways or lakes. In the goods transportation sector, Reinforced Earth® structures can be designed to withstand such heavy loads as locomotives, freight cars and travelling cranes, as well as the stresses generated by bollards and other docking structures.

While concrete panels are the most common facing used for these structures, steel wire mesh facing is also an option in case of freshwater or for structures with a short service life. The GeoTrel® system, which associates this type of facing with geosynthetic reinforcements, serves as an effective solution for sites where access is a problem.
