Walcon wins major contract in Dubai
Walcon Marine has won a contract to supply a complete marina package of walkways, finger pontoons and access bridge to the Jebel Ali Resort in Dubai, UAE.
The new marina will replace a previous 35-year old facility at the same location and will consist of a main 119m long walkway with three piers ranging in length from 50 to 62m.
30 finger pontoons of varying specifications will deliver berths for 60 boats up to 15m long, while three longer pontoons plus a 46m stretch of open walkway will provide berthing for larger yachts.
The pontoons will be Walcon’s System 2000 aluminium structures that provide resistance to the high levels of corrosion that can occur as a result of the tropical climate of Dubai combined with the high levels of salinity found in the Arabian Gulf.
The units will be manufactured by long-standing Walcon partner DBB Contracting that will also remove the old pontoons together with the piling.
A team from Walcon will install the pontoons, with assistance from DBB. The works are expected to begin in the early summer.
Walcon has previously worked on projects with the Jebel Ali Resort - in 2011 the company designed and built a floating facility to host a fuel dock and a special berth to accommodate a floating restaurant together with utilities and facilities.
