CC used to repair canal in Tonnoy, France and prevent further water loss

10 January 2018

In February 2017, Concrete Canvas® GCCM (CC) was used to remediate a concrete canal in Tonnoy, North-East France. The canal is owned by Voies Navigables de France (VNF), who own and manage 6700km on canals, rivers and waterways across France for leisure and transport activities.

Concrete Canvas’ French distributor, Point P TP, proposed the use of CC (known in France as Cimtex) to cover the failing, newer concrete sections of the canal and mechanically fix the CC to the sound, older part of the canal lower down the slope. This installation was treated as a trial for CC to gauge how well the material would perform in this application. CC was deemed the only solution for these works due to the limited site access and the complexity of the issue. The works were carried out by S.E.E.S for VNF.
