Easy and Fast Installation for Our Reinforced Soil Structure in Ötz, Austria


Our Green Terramesh® solution is pre-assembled and easily erected on the jobsite

A reinforced soil structure was needed in Ötz, Austria, to widen the area where the electricity provider TIWAG was building a storage facility. Our Green Terramesh® System was chosen as it is easy and quick to install. Furthermore, it promotes the rapid vegetation of the slope, over time it will also blend in with the environment and achieve an aesthetically pleasing result.

TIWAG-Tiroler Wasserkraft AG, one of Austria’s major electricity providers, needed to build a storage facility and identified a suitable space in the municipality of Ötz. The area is delimited by some fluvial terraces on the North side. To allow the movement of tracks, they decided to widen the surface through the construction of a reinforced soil structure (RSS).

Through our partner Katzenberger GmbH, for this project we designed and delivered the solution for a 100m long and 6 to 7m high structure using our Green Terramesh® System.

Not only does Green Terramesh® deliver efficient reinforced soil slopes, but is it aesthetically pleasing because it blends in with the environment once vegetation is established.

The solution was favoured for its easy and fast installation. The elements of the structure are pre-assembled and rapidly deployed on the jobsite, where our staff gave instruction to the contractor Fröschl on the correct installation procedures during the first steps of the construction.
