PRODUCTS, SERVICES & PEOPLE Waiting pontoons for floodrisk control scheme Walcon Marine’s Benelux distributor W2 Support BV has supplied a series of premium pontoons as part of the ongoing development of one of the largest flood-risk management schemes in the Netherlands in recent years. The ‘Room for the River IJsseldelta’ project is a major undertaking that includes the deepening of 7km (4.3mi) of the River IJseel and the construction of a new flood channel, the Reevediep. The result will be the creation of a new area for storing floodwater for managed release into the Drontermeer and IJsselmeer. In addition to facilitating the flow of excess water, the Reevediep also forms an important link and shortcut in the network of sailing routes between the bordering lakes around the province of Flevoland and the River IJssel. Walcon Marine and W2 Support engineered and supplied the pontoons for the fairways either side of the lock that connects the channel with lakes, located on the newly-built dyke of the River IJssel. Five 100m (328ft) long jetties, constructed using Walcon System 21 units, were supplied to main contractor Boskalis. Each was built with extrahigh freeboard of 900mm (35in) and double fendering. This ensures they can handle barges and larger vessels if required. The handrails that run along the rear edge of each jetty are also noteworthy as they required a compensating solution to ensure that the decking remained completely level. Walcon personnel attended on-site to assist with the installation. 24-hour charging at your marina Visitors can stay connected and remain powered up with the help of Rolec’s new outdoor charging station, which was launched last November at Metstrade.

The stations are IP65 weather proof and UV stabilised; have strong and durable proven hardware; and are CE certified. E: finest detail.
