Press Release: January 21, 2010
Atlanta, GA July 20, 2009 Combining the efforts of two industry leaders in remediation technologies promises to provide increased value to the environmental remediation industry. Tensar International Corporation (TIC) announced today that it has signed an agreement with CETCO Remediation Technologies (CETCO) granting exclusive distribution rights to the Triton Marine Mattress System in the United States and Canada for subaqueous capping of contaminated sediments. This agreement represents two industry leaders coming together to advance important and useful technology to the sediment remediation market. The combined product line offers owners, engineers and contractors a cost-effective means to overcome many of the drawbacks to traditional capping methods, remarked Jeff Fiske, TICs Coastal & Waterway Manager.
TIC, a leader in geosynthetic products for marine erosion control applications, recognized a need in the market for a delivery system that would allow installers to place a specified thickness of capping material in a controlled manner to prevent contaminated sediments from entering rivers, lakes and oceans. In early 2000, the company began promoting the Triton Coastal & Waterway Systems marine mattresses for that purpose. CETCO improved on that concept with the addition of its Reactive Core Mat (RCM) and other absorbent media to provide a means of trapping and treating more mobile contaminants in subaqueous contaminated sediments. Projects utilizing the new system have been successfully completed in three locations, including a recent pilot project on the Hudson River.
CETCO is pleased to expand our portfolio of sediment remediation products and technologies with the addition of the Triton Marine Mattress System, in conjunction with our Reactive Core Mat product, to offer a broader range of sediment remediation solutions that will meet the growing needs of the environmental remediation industry, said Chuck Hornaday, CETCO Group Manager. This new partnership delivers a flexible and fully customizable system ready to meet the needs of diverse subaqueous sediment capping projects.
