WORLD NEWS Meeting again – at Metstrade 2020 SWEDEN: Now complete and fully approved, the new floating marina built by SF Marina in Skärhamn on the west coast is a highlight in the mixed-use Kajen (Wharf) project. Supersizing was part of the design as the pontoons are twice as wide as normal and the SF floating concrete breakwater is by far the widest in the country. New marina system for Tauranga NEW ZEALAND: Tauranga Marina in the Bay of Plenty, North Island, is to be redeveloped with a new floating marina system. Poralu Marine has secured the contract – its first in New Zealand – and will manage the project using staff from Australia, where the company is already well established. The marina, owned by the Tauranga Marina Society, occupies a total area of 150 acres (61ha), with 33 acres (13.4ha) of marina. It currently offers 561 fully serviced berths for monohull and multihull vessels. In the new design, the number and size of berths will increase so as to better accommodate bigger boats like catamarans. NETHERLANDS: This year’s Metstrade event (17th-19th November) in RAI Amsterdam is scheduled to look a little different but still offer all the essential connect and catchup opportunities the industry expects. Due to COVID-19, a new ‘safe, responsible and hospitable’ protocol will be in place in order to deliver a successful show. A recent survey among previous visitors revealed that no fewer than 71% were interested in visiting the show and over 1,250 exhibitors have registered so far. Metstrade 2020 will be a hybrid event. Award ceremonies, presentations and panel discussions will be available simultaneously online. Metstrade will additionally offer the opportunity to virtually join exhibitors and visitors present in the RAI with online matchmaking tools. “Metstrade’s strength lies in connecting people,” says director Niels Klarenbeek. “We believe that we can bring our physical event to a higher platform where the best of both worlds, offline and online, seamlessly merge in a hybrid event in November.” While some land-based works are already underway, the on-water component of the project is planned to commence in the second half of 2020 with the installation of phase one of the floating marina. This will include the installation of a new pier to welcome the largest boats (up to 24m/79ft) and a fuel pontoon. Pier J at Tauranga Marina will be the first to undergo redevelopment. - July/August 2020 13
