Rebuild under way at Kornati CROATIA: Marinetek NCP is undertaking a full turnkey project to reconfigure and rebuild Marina Kornati in Biograd na Moru, one of the biggest and busiest marinas in Croatia. The contract involves removal of old fixed jetties and installation of a new floating pontoon system while the marina remains fully occupied. The footprint is tight, and the off season timeframe gives the company just four months to complete the €2.15 million first phase of the plan. Poralu buys design company FRANCE: EDDS Design, an agency specialising in industrial design and product innovation, has joined forces with Poralu Marine. Laurent Gasiglia, managing director of the Poralu Marine Group, and Eric Denis, manager of EDDS, will co-manage the company in which Poralu has become the majority shareholder. EDDS Design was founded in Lyon over 25 years ago and Poralu has been calling on its services for nearly a decade. The company played a major part in creating Poralu’s Premium pontoon range. The partnership will enable EDDS to work more easily alongside Poralu Marine Group companies Nautiscaphe, CEI and Rotax. “This acquisition is strategic to the Group’s development because it allows us to incorporate new skills in terms of industrial design,” Gasiglia noted. “The team at EDDS will add value to our activities through innovation and product development. It will also help us identify and become involved in new activities as we look to diversify.” WORLD NEWS Marina Kornati is a highly popular nautical tourism centre located on the Adriatic Sea near the Kornati islands and Telašcica Bay. In its existing format it berths 780 yachts, 270 of which are for charter, and operates at 100% occupancy. After 30 years of constant use, the concrete pile and beam fixed jetties at the marina were more than ready to be replaced. The new floating pontoon system will not only transform the quality of the berths but has also provided an opportunity to rethink the layout, make better use of space and install berths for bigger boats. Marinetek is installing 400m (1,312ft) of its new Heavy Duty 2700 and 3300 pontoons, along with mooring systems and equipment. The pontoons are being installed as each old jetty is removed and boats must be transferred from old to new as efficiently as possible. The pontoons are anchored by chains and configured for a Mediterranean mooring arrangement, are equipped with a fire fighting system and have power and water. In the next stage of the contract Marinetek will replace five jetties in the west of the marina with 525m (1,722ft) of Heavy Duty 4300 and 3300 pontoons. Second phase starts in Manama BAHRAIN: Amlak has initiated the second phase of the Bahrain Marina Development Project, a world-class coastal facility in Manama that is poised to become the kingdom’s prime lifestyle and leisure destination. Pleased with progress made to date, Amlak CEO, Mohamed Abdulelah Al Kooheji, confirmed the appointment of Benoy as the lead designer for the project. Benoy has vast experience in working alongside large scale projects in the region, including Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, Ferrari World in Dubai and The Beach in Dubai. The global construction group, Bruce Shaw, has been awarded the role of project manager and AECOM will act as marine consultants. “The second phase of the project focuses on two main aspects; clearing the existing site and finalising the detailed master plan in order to move forward into the development phase. The team will also be conducting a number of on-site studies including extensive marine studies,” Al Kooheji confirmed. Scheduled to complete in 2020, the mix-use project will include recreational waterfront space, a large yacht club with a substantial marina, a luxury hotel and serviced apartments, a shopping mall, and freehold apartments and waterfront villas. - January/February 2016 17 MW2016JanFeb.indd 17 05/01/2016 09:32:23
