The team which worked under the Tensar brand in the markets of Russia and CIS now operates under the new name – Soterra Engineering. We continue offering our clients proven engineering solutions and the same range of top quality geosynthetic materials
Soterra Engineering are a leader and expert in technology driven solutions for ground stabilisation and soil reinforcement. Soterra Engineering supplies geosynthetic products and provides proven practical solutions for poor soil conditions which can greatly impact upon the cost of railways, roads, and paved areas. Soterra Engineering also offers products for earth retaining walls and slopes, subgrade improvement and stabilization, foundations, reinforcement of asphalt to extend the life of pavements and erosion protection products for soil slopes and waterways
Soterra Engineering began working in Russia in 2011 as a joint venture of Tensar and local partners. Many team members have been designing and promoting Tensar technologies since 1996, after these solutions first came to the Russian market via distributors. In 2014 the company started manufacturing of innovative TriAx (TX), RE, and SS geogrids at its new plant in St Petersburg. At present the company provides supplies to the largest federal road and infrastructure projects in Russia and CIS and continues to expand its operations
