Jumbo protection for Oman Coast Guard A commercial berthing facility for fast patrol boats requires the kind of heavy-duty pontoon system not often used in leisure marina applications. Fortunately, UK-based Walcon Marine could offer the Royal Oman Police Coast Guard the ideal docking arrangement. The facility, part of a special new Coast Guard Harbour in the town of Sidab – a short distance to the east of Muscat on the Gulf of Oman – accommodates 19 patrol boats of 26 to 35m (85 to 115ft) in length at alongside berths. The berths are located at five piers that extend from 315m (1,033ft) of walkway that runs along a section of the harbour’s inner wall. At the western end, 19 finger pontoons, each of 10m (33ft) in length, are used by smaller Interceptor craft and RIBs. Walcon specified its heavy-duty steel Jumbo pontoons, which are 3m (10ft) wide, have 750mm (29.5in) freeboard, a central service duct and a high live load. The entire facility is protected by a new 370m (1,214ft) rock breakwater. The Coast Guard division of the Royal Oman Police is responsible for the safety and security of Oman’s territorial waters and undertakes anti-piracy and anti-smuggling operations as well as search and rescue duties. Walcon worked with main contractor Carillion Alawi LLC to realise the project. E: PONTOON/DOCK SYSTEMS & ACCESSORIES The ladder that saves lives A patent has been filed for the new safety ladder – LifeLadder – from Danish start-up company, Port-Safety, as it continues to sell around the world. With or without its innovative light unit, the product is deemed to be significantly more visible than traditional safety ladders and its maintenance-free construction materials are not only a benefit to busy marina and harbour operators but are an inherent additional safety measure. LifeLadder cannot corrode and become vulnerable to breakage during use. It is made of reinforced synthetic modules in a bright yellow colour that ensure visibility during daytime. Solar-powered LED lights provide visibility at night and clear direction to safety. These materials have already proven their worth in the harsh maritime environment. Quayside constructions often leave the lower part of safety ladders unsupported, offering chain-steps or other flexible solutions that are difficult to climb. LifeLadder’s rigid construction eliminates this challenge and increases the chance of saving lives. The product is also cost-efficient. Its significantly lower weight makes it easier to handle and install, without the cost of a crane. And the modular construction contributes to improvements in sustainability as any damaged ladder need not be replaced but can be repaired with new modules. E: - September/October 2019 51
