Fully automatic plant for the production of breakwaters on the island of La Réunion

APS – Advanced Precast Systems, 37550 St. Avertin, France


Normally a dyke consists of an embankment covered by a protective armouring of large concrete blocks (or breakwaters) in order to resist the force of the waves. Up until 2014 the manufacture of these blocks still required a great deal of work, space and time. Today they can be manufactured using a method that has already proven itself with tubbings. A fully automatic plant manufactured and installed on an area of over 2,700 m² by APS (Advanced Precast Systems) can supply 38,500 concrete blocks for breakwaters for a large-scale project.
