Accoya wood canal lining

The Netherlands

Canal Lining

Certain environments are particularly punishing: few are harsher than the banks of canals, where Accoya wood is used to hold back the earth. In this application the wood’s exposure to water, microbe rich soil and – most obviously at the waterline – air, is particularly challenging. In the Netherlands, canal linings were traditionally made using tropical hardwoods but, with this no longer being an option, an alternative is needed. Accoya was trialled for this purpose with excellent results. Even after 10 years in the water, the Accoya trialled emerged with no discernible degradation at all.
