PRODUCTS & SERVICES Tubular docks for English harbour Docking Solutions, now a brand of Walcon Marine, has supplied six of its distinctive heavy-duty tubular steel pontoons to the Town Dock in Torquay Harbour, Torbay, England. They replace conventional yacht pontoons on the seaward side of the outer harbour that had reached end of life. Torbay is particularly susceptible to easterly winds and already has a Docking Solutions’ wave screen that doubles up as docking for large vessels. “The six pontoons are 3m [10ft] wide to match the existing Docking Solutions wave screen,” explains Walcon’s Colin Bower. “The four at the seaward end are each 24m [79ft] long, providing an exceptionally stable Site-specific gangways cover all options Having expanded is successful bespoke access gangway product line to appeal to the marine sector, UK company Aviramp is now targeting the marina market at an international level. To meet the specific standards of the industry, each gangway in the Ra’alloy range is manufactured using marine grade aluminium and incorporates Aviramp’s standard slip-resistant, allweather flooring. “Our customised approach means that our gangways can be produced in virtually any length and width as part of a fully bespoke design, manufacture and installation process,” explains Aviramp’s Luke Smith. “We can also include 3D modelling prior to production so that clients can evaluate and tweak the requirement to avoid any issues on installation.” and robust structure, and the two at the shoreward end are approximately 9m [29ft] long. The first one in the line has a variable freeboard so that the inner end matches the existing marina pontoons at 500mm [20in] and then the gradient increases gradually along its length to 700mm [27in] to match the wave screen freeboard. We designed this arrangement so as to avoid the need for a steep ramp.” Nick Burns, deputy harbour master at the Tor Bay Harbour Authority, comments: “It’s great to have them in and providing the wave protection that we need. They are much sturdier than the product we had before. Our existing Docking Solutions pontoons have been in place for 13 years and are in good shape so we are very happy with this continuation.” E: Other features include options for either a manually operated hydraulic system or an electro-hydraulic system. Hinged transition plates can also be added at the rear of the gangway, along with various harbour links at the front end, which might involve a fixed wall based trailer or swivelling trailer ring type connection pods. E: A recently manufactured Ra’alloy 14m (46ft) bespoke gangway being installed at Langthwaite Solar Array, a floating solar farm in the UK. - May/June 2019 55
