Dewatering Process


Our solutions make dewatering easier and more cost-effective. The dewatering process is the removal of water from solid material or soil by filtration, centrifugation or other solid-liquid separation processes. We provide an excellent solution in our geotextile tubes, MacTubes®, which are used for dewatering mine tailings, sludge ponds or slurries. They are specifically designed to… Read more »

Weirs, Culverts and Transverse Structures


Over a century of experience in transverse structures. Transverse Structures are used to control dynamic hydraulic flows carrying solids or sediments. These structures obstruct the flow, changing its hydraulic behaviour and its ability to erode. We have over a century of experience in the selection of appropriate transverse structures, used to control water channel flow…. Read more »

Waterproofing of Reservoirs, Lakes and Channels


The many functions of waterproofing and lining. Waterproofing and lining reservoirs, lakes and channels serves many functions, whether to provide storm water attenuation ponds, or prevent contaminated water polluting the ground. These containment structures are used within many market sectors including; – Slurry ponds in agriculture – Leachate lagoons in mine workings – Storm water… Read more »

Vertical Walls with Concrete Facing Panels


Situations that require our cost-effective engineered solutions. Where only a narrow construction corridor is available, or a reinforced soil structure with a vertical face in urban areas is required, we offer clients our cost-effective engineered solutions. Building in tight urban areas and mines. These structures are regularly used to support or enable the construction of… Read more »

Surface Strengthening and Support


Working to mitigate against unstable surface layers. Certain rock slopes have an unstable surface layer which often requires additional stabilisation. We offer a range of high strength mesh systems which are designed to work in conjunction with anchorages, to increase the stability of the unstable surficial layer. Key factors to consider in limiting unstable mass… Read more »

Soil Nailing


The use of soil nailing. Soil Nailing is a technique that can be used either on natural or excavated slopes, where the slope is reinforced by the insertion of tendons. The nails address the global slope stability, which are connected in turn to a facing system which provides surficial stability. Maccaferri range of solutions. Our… Read more »
