Dutch TenCate Geosynthetics and Swiss AGT International recently signed a letter of intent for collaboration on the installation of TenCate GeoDetect technology in a dike body at the Yellow River in Dayulan, Henan province in China to help monitor the dike there.

As introduced, specifically designed for geotechnical applications, TenCate GeoDetect is a patented monitoring system based on geotextiles with interwoven fiber optics, which registers changes in embankments and dikes, and the system will be used in the AGT Flood Early Warning System (FEWS).

The FEWS will be employed to collect and analyze data on dike stability and deformations in the dike and on the risk of flooding. The information will provide a basis for taking measures to prevent subsidence or dike failure as quickly as possible. The system is also able to do a flood prognosis and can assist decision makers in timely evacuation. It will provide the manager with information about the condition and stability of the dike.

Wally Moore, Global Group Director of TenCate Geosynthetics, said: "The combination of our geosynthetics and sensor technology with partners such as AGT International gives us an innovative and differentiated approach to the tracing of possible defects in and problems with dikes and the hydraulic-infrastructural segment of our water and environmental activities."

Pieter-Christiaan van Oranje-Nassau, Head of AGT International in the Netherlands, said: "Our solution collects real-time information from new and existing systems to generate a real-time assessment of the river conditions. Our advanced prediction and simulation software will generate alerts and recommendations to affected areas."

The Yellow River project in China is being carried out by AGT International in partnership with TNO Operations, and will have a duration of over one year. The commissioning authority is the Yellow River Conservancy Commission (YRCC), which is responsible for the water management of the complete Yellow River. This river has a length of circa 5,000km through China. Once the project is completed, the YRCC and AGT International will promote this solution to water and dike managers, including those in China.

TenCate Geosynthetics develops solutions and systems for transportation infrastructure, water management and cleaning, and environmental applications, delivered through synthetic woven, nonwoven, and knitted products, while AGT International is a public safety and security solutions organization.
