Rolling upgrade expands

Two out of three new piers are now in place, completing the next stage of expansion at Hartford Marine, UK.

Thanks to Walcon, when completed, the Hartford Marina will be home to 225 motor and narrow boats up to 20 metres in length, giving them access to the River Great Ouse, the waterways of East Anglia and beyond. The new walkway is 145 metres long and built using Walcon’s System 2000 aluminium framed pontoons. The finger pontoons will be delivered by Walcon over time as bookings are taken.

Tingdene acquired the marina in 2016 and Walcon also undertook the initial phase of its regeneration which saw the first pier go in together with a back walkway for three of the four piers. Thereafter, in line with their business model, the upgrade will continue with the rolling removal of old pontoons and the installation of new piers in response to demand.

Steve Arber, Operations Director at Tingdene Marinas Ltd, said: “We are very happy to work with Walcon in continuing to develop our marinas, offering top-quality marina infrastructure to match our beautiful locations.”

Walcon Marine’s James Walters added: “It’s a pleasure to continue to work with Tingdene and to contribute to its success in providing quality berthing to the inland waterways community.”

Tingdene’s ten inland marinas are spread across central, eastern and southern England. Broadlands Marina in Suffolk, a recent acquisition for Tingdene, saw Walcon supply a complete package of pontoons and fittings required to create an 88-metre back walkway and three piers with finger pontoons, capable of providing an additional 54 berths for leisure craft up to twelve metres in length.

Walcon has also been working with Tingdene on upgrading the Racecourse Marina, at Windsor in Berkshire, and Pyrford Marina, in Surrey.
