Application of Silt Curtains at a Dredging Project, New Taipei, Taiwan

Products:ACECurtain™

Application: Silt and Turbidity Control

Background

The purposes of this project are dredging mud on the seabed around the Linkou Power Plant and its port and using the dredged silt for land reclamation in Taipei Port in preparation for the need of future operation.

Problem / Task

When the dredging work proceeds, seabed sediments are disturbed and lead high concentration slurry suspension to diffuse in the sea.

Solution/ Design & Construction

ACECurtain™ silt curtains are installed around the area of dredging to restrain the dispersion of silt, so as not to cause damage to the fishermen's rights and port operations. ACECurtain™ is made of durable ACETex® woven geotextile as the vertical skirt with floating and anchoring systems. The overall setting length is 3,000 meters.

Result

The separation, filtration, and energy dissipation characteristics of ACECurtain™ silt curtain can be flexibly met with the different demands of maritime engineering to prevent the diffusion of turbid water and control silt deposition. Also, ACECurtain™ can be easily installed and has high reusability. On the whole, it can achieve the goal of considering both engineering and environmental protection.
