Heavy-duty Walcon pontoons for Seawork

Walcon is once again responsible for the design, build and installation of the marina for Seawork.

For the duration of the event this will be the home for a wide range of vessels ranging from fast interceptors and crew transfer vessels to survey and police boats. The largest visitor will, be from Damen Shipyards. This time, it is a 27-metre Shoalbuster 2711 multipurpose workboat.

The outer walkways are built using Walcon’s Waliflote wave attenuating pontoons. The floats present a continuous concrete wall to moderate incoming waves and the decking has a live load of 1.3 kN m². The remainder of the marina has been constructed using Walcon’s heavy-duty Jumbo pontoons. These are ideal for workboat and light commercial / government agency applications.

The marina was installed in just six days thanks to the permanent sockets drilled into the seabed some years ago for the event. Walcon’s Wizard piling barge plus some precision GPS work ensure the rapid insertion of the piles and then the pontoons can be swiftly installed.
