WORLD NEWS The extended pontoon system at Marina Park, Leukermeer, has added 56 berths. Dutch trade boost NETHERLANDS: UK company Walcon reports a strong year to date for business in the Netherlands. Varied projects have been undertaken by its Benelux partner Infra Trading BV. At the Turfhaven in Doesburg, Infra Trading installed a facility that combined finger pontoons and a long walkway with a 441m² (4,747ft²) floating platform (subsequently fitted with bicycle storage racks). The structure is to help people board an excursion boat and is complemented by a number of berths and an access bridge. System 21 New docks increase investment pontoons were used for the project. The first phase of a new marina at Heveahaven in Renkum was also under way at the start of the year. Walkways and finger pontoons capable of holding 49 boats were installed in an area previously used by craft waiting to use a nearby lock. The project was the result of an initiative to give Renkum residents easier access to their local waterways. The plan is to add more capacity in the future. Another project involved extending the existing installation at the new Marina Park at Leukermeer, a development providing luxury holiday villas and apartments. Three existing piers were lengthened and a new 90m (295ft) pier added. In all, 28 finger piers were installed providing 56 berths for boats up to 13m (43ft). In addition to various smaller projects, Infra Trading worked with contractor Tebezo BV to install 14 finger pontoons, each of 10m (33ft) in length, for a project at Lauwersoog. Plastic floats with a high freeboard and black painted galvanised steel framework were used in the design. Galvanised grating was used for the pontoon decking. “The Netherlands continues to be an important market for us,” said Walcon managing director James Walters. “Marina and berthing operators value the quality of our products and over the years the brand has built up a good reputation in the industry. The team at Infra Trading is doing a great job in continuing the momentum and winning new business across the Benelux region.” USA: Ocean Reef Club’s decision to replace its fixed concrete piers with concrete floating docks has paid unexpectedly high dividends. The club, based in Key Largo, Florida, opted to have two docks (D and H) replaced in 2011. Bellingham Marine was awarded the contract for this as well as the follow-up contracts for Docks E and F in November 2015. Members of Ocean Reef Club’s Marina Village Condominium Association have enjoyed an excellent return on the investment. “The decision to upgrade our docks was one we knew would pay off,” said Sandy Marks, board member of F Dock. “What we didn’t appreciate was how large the payoff would be. A single slip that was priced at 0,000 before the renovation is now valued at close to 0,000. The returns are even more impressive for the owners of the largest slips.” - July/August 2016 19
