Flexible docks for condo development An old section of industrial waterfront has been completely transformed into a contemporary condominium development called Kaldnes Brygge in Tønsberg, Norway. The development includes berthing at an SF Marina dock system, which has moveable fingers to maximise efficient use of space. Installed by Arne Rød og co, the 108m (354ft) dock runs the length of the waterfront and has 26 slips. Wooden fingers were chosen to reduce costs and better match the post-modern design of the residential area. Gangways have been placed on both ends of the dock and are hinged to accommodate a 0.8m (2.6ft) tidal fluctuation. The dock has been built using SF Marina’s rugged SF1024 floating concrete pontoons. Thick-walled and reinforced with steel, they are unsinkable and offer exceptional service life with minimal maintenance. Integrated conduits support electric service to the slips. A semi-modular design, the structure uses an innovative Witherspoon glide anchoring system to secure the walkway, Y boom and fingers. “By combining concrete and composite materials, we created a cost-effective marina that offers the PRODUCTS, SERVICES & PEOPLE flexibility of moveable fingers that can be adjusted to change the slip size as needed,” said Tor-Öiyvind Halvorsen, CEO of SF Pontona Norge, SF Marina’s distributor in Norway. The dock is phase one of a five-part harbour project that will ultimately have capacity for 200 boats up to 10.5m (34ft) in length.
