Offshore wind turbines in particular are faced with the challenge that the ocean currents erode the soil layer around the foundation. This process is usually counteracted with the backfilling of stones.
However, the challenge cannot always be solved in this way. Sometimes the right rock is not available in the region in question to stop the scouring process.
Jäger Mare Solutions basalt bags are a flexible and environmentally friendly solution. The bags are made of a specially developed basalt fabric and are conveniently filled with round gravel or sand on site. Besides the application as scour protection, our Jäger basalt bags can also be used for the weighting of submarine cables or pipelines and as fixation in dike and coastal construction.
