PONTOONS/DOCKS & DECKING Marina boosts country club amenities A new marina at the Campeche Country Club in southeast Mexico will further enhance luxury facilities at an unspoilt recreational retreat. Completed last year by Ronautica Marinas, the marina has been built using 400m (1,312ft) of aluminium pontoons with polyethylene floats secured by steel piles driven into rock. The layout accommodates up to 90 boats in a size range of 7-18m (24-60ft) and has floating platforms for 60 jet skis. The pontoon arrangement, which includes a 180m² (1,937ft²) fixed entrance platform and fingers of 6-18m (20-59ft) in length, has been decked using Twinwood; a durable, weatherproof composite product manufactured by Portuguese company Soprefa. The turnkey project, which took five months to complete, was designed by Aquatica Ingeneria to include a fixed breakwater and over 500 linear metres of artificial beach. Offering a golf course, spa, pool and other leisure and sports amenities, the marina club has access to good sailing waters as well as the scenery and archaeological wealth to be found on the west side of the fascinating Yucatan Peninsula. Three months of international growth As the first quarter of 2017 drew to a close, Ingemar Group was actively engaged in marina projects in five European countries (Malta, Switzerland, Slovenia, Croatia and France), in addition to work on sites in Italy (Capo d’Orlando, Venice, Monfalcone, La Spezia) and ongoing projects in the Middle East (Saudi Arabia and Kuwait). In Valletta, Malta, Ingemar is installing 530m (1,739ft) of floating pontoons of FE King Size type for Azimut’s new Marina di Valletta shipyard. The floating units are 3m (10ft) wide and of steel and concrete construction with hardwood decking. In Locarno, Switzerland, the company is building a protection barrier with F/ CAXXL floating breakwater elements in reinforced cement for Centro Nautico Di Domenico. Weighing 67 tonnes and measuring 20 x 4 x 2m (66 x 13 x 6.5ft), the units are anchored with piles driven into the lake-bed and equipped with steel, concrete and timber fingers. Breakwater modules of type F/ CAXL at 12 x 3 x 1.80m (39 x 10 x 6ft) have meanwhile been supplied for the new municipal marina of Portorose in Adrian, Slovenia. Weighing 28 tonnes, they are being used to create allconcrete continuous type floating piers, measuring 12 x 2.5 x 1m (39 x 8 x 3ft). Over the next few months, a floating marina is also due for installation at Portovecchio Marine in Corsica using 17 reinforced concrete floating modules of Heavy Duty type, and in Croatia - a little to the south of Novi Vinodolski where Ingemar outfitted a new marina in 2016 - an enlargement project for Marina Murovska will be undertaken. Floating FE Slim Size piers of reduced size at 1.6m (5ft) in steel, concrete and high quality timber, and floating finger units in rotational moulded polyethylene will be used. All of these different types of Ingemar piers and breakwaters have been laboratory tested and designed for specific purposes, taking wave force characteristics and the dimensions of vessels to be accommodated into account. The diverse types of piers available allow for a wide spectrum of uses and, in conjunction with large breakwater elements, can be used to create complete floating marinas thus saving on costs and reducing environmental impact. Ingemar systems can be anchored in many ways according to marina layout and the type of sea bed. Examples include chains or Dyneema lines and concrete anchor-weights set in the sea bed and recessed into the piers with special running systems, and vertical beams fixed into the quay wall with sliders. Group president Lorenzo Isalberti describes the portfolio as offering “a complete range of technical solutions to allow for a wide range of commercial propositions aimed at satisfying all requested specifications.” Ingemar prides itself on being one of the few companies in the sector with its own production facilities and undertakes its own internal R&D activities in order to anticipate the requirements of the market. It works to ISO 9001 certification for design, construction and installation of the products it manufactures. - May/June 2017 49
