TECCO® Trapunta is designed for underwater application; the compact cell arrangement resists the most demanding conditions. It protects water-based infrastructures, such as harbor walls, bridge piers (e.g. from scouring) around and underwater installations of pipework and cables. TECCO® Trapunta also is used for seabed sediment control as its flexibility enables it to adapt to the existing seabed. The high-tensile stainless-steel mesh ensures unparalleled durability in seawater.
TECCO® Trapunta is similar to the TECCO® CELL Mobile solution, but has been designed specifically for underwater application. A more compact arrangement of cells is used to resist the most demanding conditions. Providing protection of water-based infrastructure, such as scouring around harbour walls, bridge piers and underwater pipework and cables. This product also can be used for seabed sediment control as its flexibility enables it to conform very well to the existing seabed.
"Trapunta in Italian is a duvet or quilt. This describes the function of the flexible unit of mesh and local rock: It adapts well to the subsoil and protects with its heavy weight from wash-out or damage of any kind."
Ready-made modules are simply placed on the areas to be protected, e.g. by mobile crane or from a barge.
Die Einheiten werden abseits des Einsatzortes mit allen erforderlichen Werkzeugen fertiggestellt.
Multiple cells can be linked together.
The filling material consists of local rock. Components can not be released into the environment and the material can be recycled if cells are ever to be removed.
High-class stainless steel components guarantee a long lifespan
even in highly corrosive environment.
