CC used as slope protection at Western Scotland fish hatchery

26 November 2018

In July 2018, CC GCCM was specified as a slope protection solution for use around header tanks at a newly constructed fish hatchery.

The site, situated in the West of Scotland, was only accessible via ferry, making material options for the project very limited. Various options were considered, but CC was chosen due to its speed and ease of installation. The fact that plant equipment wasn't needed to install the material was also a big advantage, simplifying logistics.

The installation was carried out with basic tools, including a cut-off saw, ground pegs, screws and ladders. No specialist training was required.
