PONTOONS & BREAKWATERS In order to deliver modules for the Sea City project in Kuwait (left) Ingemar set up a local construction site. A similar enterprise was established for the giant floating breakwaters (below) being built for a project in La Spezia, Italy. Streamlining the build process As the fourth quarter of 2018 approaches, Italian marina specialist Ingemar Group reports on a range of projects recently completed or under way. A policy of streamlining production, building large pontoon and breakwater modules on site, and continuing with R&D and certification, have contributed to the company’s ongoing success on domestic and export markets. Taking the lead from its development of a construction site in Kuwait to deliver modules for the Sea City project, Ingemar is currently utilising space near Pagliari Wharf to produce its biggest ever floating breakwaters for a marina project in La Spezia, Italy. By building the giant components, up to 20 x 10 x 2.4m (66 x 33 x 8ft) and weighing 180 tonnes, close to their final destination, significant production savings are being made, swifter completion is achieved, energy consumption is reduced and pollution is limited or eliminated due to reduced handling and transport activities. The completed breakwater will be around 450m (1,476ft) in length and will protect a timber-decked pontoon system for over 850 boats that is currently being manufactured at the Ingemar factory in Casale sul Sile. In Friuli in Monfalcone, the company has continued to work with two longterm customers Circolo Nautico Timavo and Lega Navale Monfalcone on expansion projects that maximise use of water space while taking the specific needs of association users into account. The two resulting piers resemble an open-air Ingemar showroom as they include elements such as pontoons of different widths (reinforced and standard, with ordinary and high freeboard), fingers, mooring rods, breakwaters, mooring lines, concrete blocks, ground chains, anchoring systems with steel piles and chains – and more. Work is also ongoing at other Italian marinas in Marzamemi (Sicily), Cannigione (Sardinia), Brindisi, Chioggia and Venice. The Middle East and Europe remain major export markets. Fixed docks for work access vehicles have been built in Aqaba (Jordan) and at Sea City in Kuwait, where production of the floating elements for the third marina has been completed. Design work for the fourth and final marina is currently being finalised. In Saudi Arabia the latest installations for the Ministry of the Interior have recently been tested and commissioned. These include special landing places with steel fingers and concrete floating pontoons for boats up to 18m (59ft). A series of floating concrete breakwaters has also been installed at two different sites. Highlights in Europe include marina installations in Corsica, Montenegro and Greece. Concrete floating attenuators are now in place in Pianottoli in southern Corsica to protect moorings inside the bay, and an extension to a public landing place in Santa Manza (near Bonifacio), built by Ingemar in 2017, will shortly be installed. Ingemar has also been contracted to build the two new marinas that will form the Lustica Bay tourist resort in the Bay of Kotor, Montenegro. The main marina will accommodate around 180 boats up to 35m (115ft) in length. The second facility, for smaller boats, has been designed with a modular layout so that it can rapidly be reconfigured according to the season and any specific berthing requirements. The first pier was completed in early July. One final project of note has been long awaited. Marina Zea in Athens, managed by D-Marin, will soon have a new series of pontoons thanks to receiving a much delayed go-ahead from local authorities for installation. The all-concrete floating pontoons have been stored for many years on the quay at Piraeus and, further to checks and preliminary tests that confirm their excellent condition, will finally be put in place. - September/October 2018 35
