PONTOON/DOCK SYSTEMS & ACCESSORIES Working with clients to tailor gangway systems UK manufacturer Aviramp continues to build its order book for bespoke gangway solutions having completed two projects in association with Northern Pontoon, a company that specialises in the hire, sale and customisation of pontoon systems. Above & below: Pontoons and gangways installed on the River Trent in Nottingham, UK, for the Accenture World Triathlon. Aviramp provided a full service for its gangways covering design, manufacture and assistance with installation. As reported in May/June, the company’s Ra’alloy gangway was customised for United Utilities in order to give efficient access for maintenance engineers going to and from reservoir banks and pontoons at Langthwaite Solar Array. The 14m x 1.2m (46ft x 4ft) gangway, which is fitted with a security gate, links to a modular pontoon arrangement provided by Northern Pontoon. The second joint venture comprised the design and manufacture of gangways with transition plates to link to Northern Pontoon’s floating pontoons for the prestigious 2019 Accenture World Triathlon mixed relay on the River Trent in Nottingham, UK. As the transition plates can be fitted at either end, the gangways can be used on other projects in the future. As both projects were precisely tailored, Aviramp was instructed to design the gangways with a Safe Working Load (SWL) of 2.5k/n m². The projects thus involved making site visits to undertake necessary diagnostic and risk assessments, creating a brief, producing technical drawings for one of its structural engineers, and manufacturing all from scratch in-house. Site assistance was also provided for each installation. Aviramp is keen to emphasise that, although cost-effective and able to work to demanding deadlines, it differs from competitive manufacturers by working in close collaboration with its clients from concept through to complete installation. Customer service and after sales support take the highest priority. E: 54 - September/October 2019

PONTOON/DOCK SYSTEMS & ACCESSORIES Ferry marina for emirates passenger service Chinese company Livart Marine has completed a harbour facility for Sharjah RTA Marine Works to enable it to simultaneously dock large ferries. The project marks the opening of a marine transport service between Sharjah and Dubai. Livart installed a heavy concrete pontoon measuring 6m x 80m (20ft x 262ft), a floating platform and an aluminium gangway (type 6061 T6). The system is aluminium framed for solidity and aesthetic appeal and is fully equipped with Rolec utilities. The pontoon system has a freeboard of 1.5m (5ft). The project, undertaken in cooperation with main contractor China Harbour Dubai Company, will instigate a passenger service between Aquarium Marine Station in Sharjah and Al Ghubaiba Marine Station in Dubai. It will reduce stress on the roads between the two emirates by providing a safe and fast marine transport solution.
