Offshore Marine Management (OMM) has teamed up with Geofabrics Australasia, who provides geotextiles and geosynthetic engineering solutions, to create a new and effective, environmentally sensitive and sustainable solution for scour protection at the base of wind turbines.
 
OMM will be using Geofabrics Elcorock System, a robust sand filled container made from the highest durability geotextile fabric, to provide an alternative to rock placement protection, which also helps marine life to thrive and could assist in securing planning permission.Elcorock was originally developed over 20 years ago to prevent erosion of beaches along the Australian Gold Coast shoreline and has also proven to be beneficial to the environment, encouraging underwater habitats to grow around the system. OMM will be working closely with Geofabrics to repurpose the product for use in the renewables industry by utilising its knowledge and providing advice on the correct design, detailing and planning installations of this system along with an ongoing maintenance plan.
