Since the year 2000, the Panama Canal has depended on Tensar Triton Marine Mattresses to protect its shores from scour caused by large ships. This video gives a brief look at our most recent waterway installation at the North Approach wall in Miraflores, Panama. 


Coastal & Waterway Erosion Resources

Tensar has developed a coastal erosion resource center to arm engineers with information as they research solutions for better coastal & waterway protection. There you can watch an informative webinar, compare scour protection methods, download case studies among many other helpful tools.
