In April 2018, Concrete Canvas® GCCM* (CC) was used to protect the wall, or slope, of a settling basin at a mining site in Thio, New Caledonia.
The client specified CC for this trial installation in order to understand the material, its advantages over alternatives, and how it works. HDPE had previously lined the slope but the client found it had limited durability. CC's 50-year design life and unique properties made CC a perfect fit for the scheme.
Works were carried out by SODISCAL for SLN - Eramet.
