Terraqua-Environmental Solutions: Silt Curtain Case Study.
Product: Silt Curtain
Silt Curtain size: 60m long – 10m deep
Location: Heron Quay, Canary Wharf – London
Client: Abwood Contract Support Ltd
Date: June 2014
Terraqua ES recently supplied a heavy duty PVC Silt Curtain 60 m long by 10 m deep. The Silt Curtain was held in position with ballast chains and weighted against the dock edge to stop silt ingress back towards the excavation.
The Silt Curtain was sunk into existing dock sediments and additional weights were used to hold the curtain in position, recovery chains with buoys were used to assist in the recovery and final removal of the silt curtain.
