WORLD NEWS Contractor appointed for DWDR marina UK: The Port of Dover has awarded a major £2.7 million contract to Solent Marine to design and fit out a new 250-berth marina that forms part of its flagship Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) development. DWDR is the single biggest investment ever undertaken by the Port. The contract includes the design and construction of the pontoons, access bridge, fuel dock tanks and pumps, and pontoons and access bridge for a new boatyard. According to DWDR programme director, Dave Herrod, the marina, which will cater for boats up to 18m (59ft) in length, is likely to be opened in late 2019. “The DWDR contract is a very prestigious project and turns full circle as my father Victor Simmonds installed pontoons at Dover dating back to the ‘80s,” said Solent Marine managing director Marc Simmonds. Two more for The Palm – and six for Deira UAE: Master developer Nakheel is investing AED15 million to increase boat mooring capacity on Palm Jumeirah, with two new marinas that will bring the total berths on the island to 600. The marinas will be built at the Azure Residences waterfront apartment and restaurant complex on the island’s eastern trunk and at The Pointe, Nakheel Malls’ upcoming seafront dining and shopping destination. Nakheel has appointed Majestic Marine Engineering to build the marinas and Applied Technology & Management has been appointed as consultant. Due for completion this year, the marinas will berth a total of 44 boats up to 30m (98ft) in length and complement the two existing marinas. The company is also building six marinas, at a cost of AED165 million, at its new waterfront master development Deira Islands. Between them, they will accommodate 614 vessels up to 60m (197ft). “This was a project I wanted to win and we look forward to this being built in our new manufacturing facility on Hayling Island.” City dock opens with new-look infrastructure USA: Naples City Dock, Naples, Florida opened in early summer after a radical new facelift. Bellingham Marine worked with Kelly Brothers Marine Construction and Turrell Hall and Associates on the popular local landmark. Reconstruction was finished in March. “Hurricane Irma caused a delay on the delivery of the docks,” shared Todd Turrell, principal at Turrell Hall and Associates. “It turned out to be a blessing in disguise for the project because the docks were spared any possible damage, unlike many other structures in Naples.” The marina, now whole again, boasts a brightly painted dockmaster’s office, restroom/ laundry facility and large gazebo, each sitting on a match-cast floating platform (see p. 47). The structures were built to withstand 170mph winds. “A new high-speed fuelling system, together with many other improvements, such as FRP thrurods, has made the new facility one The existing 160 berth Wellington Dock will now become a 24- hour facility. “The design of the new marina will be compliant with The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) design standards; set within the harbour and bordered by a new 550m [1,804ft] long Marina Pier; and adjacent to the new 750m [2,461ft] Marina Curve development area designed to host a waterfront retail and leisure experience,” confirmed Port of Dover marina manager, Chris Windsor. of the finest municipal marinas in southwest Florida,” remarked Steve Ryder, Bellingham Marine manager of product development. “The FRP rods are the new standard in the Unifloat docks. They are corrosion resistant and require almost zero maintenance, which our clients appreciate.” The marina has the same number of slips that it had in its previous life although they are larger to meet local demand. Each has upgraded electricity with ground fault monitoring, potable water and advanced fire protection systems. Slips range from 30-60ft (9-18m) with an additional 430ft (131m) of side-tie space providing mooring for boats up to 120ft (36.5m) long. There is a two-year waiting list for slips. - September/October 2018 9
