GeSyso Geosynthetic Tubes Lekki Nigeria

Dangote Oil Refining Company (DORC) is setting up a green field refinery, polypropylene plant and fertilizer plant planned at 30 nautical miles east of Lagos, Nigeria. To provide Ocean access to a RoRo Jetty facility, an access channel, turning circle and basin need to be dredged, to be protected by a Breakwater Structure.
CDR International was contracted to design (and supervise) the works (project). With the assistance of GeSySo and Huesker Synthetic, a beach protection solution was designed, consisting of a geosynthetic tube and geotextile apron. The solution will be completely covered by sand, and work as a hidden beach protection. Construction is ongoing by Boskalis. The construction works started in October 2017 and will be finished in the summer of 2018.
