WORLD NEWS Benelux bonus BELGIUM & NETHERLANDS: In the first half of this year several significant marina and berthing projects were completed in the Benelux region by Walcon Marine and its local agent Infra Trading. Mechelse Waterski Klub (MWK), one of Belgium’s top water ski venues, was subject to a major refurbishment project that included the construction of a new clubhouse and new Walcon berthing facilities for over 100 speedboats up to 12m (39ft) in length. The project had its challenges as the main walkway had to fit the curvature of the lake shore. This required careful design and precise installation. Five bridges give access to the walkway and 14 15m (49ft) radius arms and locker pontoons give rigidity to the overall structure. The walkways and finger pontoons are fitted with plastic decking to give excellent grip in all weather conditions. Work took place from February to July and the new facilities – designed for club members and as a competition venue – opened in time for the summer holidays. Additional projects were completed in the Netherlands. Highlights include Jachthaven de Molenwaard (above) in Hasselt, where a pier with ten finger pontoons was installed and two adjacent piers with hammerheads were refurbished. The specification included Dura Deck decking and the use of plastic floats under the finger pontoons. At Roompot Marina in Kamperland the 218m (715ft) Pier 2 was rebuilt, complete with a new walkway and 16 finger pontoons, and a subsidiary walkway with 15 finger pontoons was added. “The Benelux region continues to be an active and valued marketplace for us,” said Walcon managing director James Walters. “Marina owners there value high quality products that will give many years of service despite intensive use, and our partnership with Infra Trading remains a great success.” - September/October 2015 15
