Just three weeks to Seawork 2018. One of our favourite shows, not least because it is a short drive away in Southampton, but also because the sun (almost) always shines and it is full of interesting products and vessels. We have a number of clients exhibiting, and if anyone else out there needs some last minute assistance with press and marketing materials, give us a call! (The pictures / video are from 2017) ...

Alewijnse Marine is holding an open day in the Netherlands at the end of June to introduce school-age children to maritime electrical engineering and the career opportunities it presents. It's part of a wider initiative in their region to encourage kids who enjoy technology and hands-on problem-solving to get a taste of the sector. It's a great idea! There should be more of it going on...

Walcon Marine has won the 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.

The new facility is comprised of a main walkway 119 metres in length with three piers coming off it; ranging in length from 50 to 62 metres. 30 finger pontoons of varying specifications will deliver berths for 60 boats up to 15 metres long, while three longer pontoons plus a 46-metre stretch of open walkway will provide berthing for larger yachts.

Walcon’s System 2000 pontoons will be used throughout. Their aluminium structures provide excellent 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 LLC, which will also undertake the removal of the old pontoons together with the piling. A team from Walcon will undertake the installation, with assistance from DBB. The works are expected to begin in the early summer.

Walcon Marine has a long history of working in the Middle East and has had the pleasure of working on previous projects with the Jebel Ali Resort. In 2011 it designed and built a floating facility to host a fuel dock and a special berth to accommodate a floating restaurant together with all the necessary utilities and facilities.
