WORLD NEWS INNOVATIVE. DURABLE. LOW-MAINTENANCE. Successful connections ONLINE: Over 4,700 leisure marine industry professionals from 23 countries signed up for the first virtual Metstrade Connect on 12 th December 2020. During the day, 12 knowledge sessions were organised with a total of 55 speakers. Together with visitors and sponsors – who shared their products and innovations - they made a total of over 1,500 connections. Each session attracted an average of 85 attendees with the top five countries for participation being the Netherlands, Italy, UK, USA and Germany. Niels Klarenbeek, director maritime Metstrade, commented: “I am delighted that, despite the current circumstances, we found a way to virtually connect the leisure marine industry by offering knowledge sessions in combination with an intelligent network platform. We strongly believe in the power of meeting in person and we look forward to organising a physical show this year.” Contractors appointed for Ocean Reef breakwater AUSTRALIA: The McGowan Government has appointed two Western Australian companies, WA Limestone and Italia Stone Group, to build the breakwaters for the redeveloped Ocean Reef Marina in Joondalup. The AU million breakwaters, each of 2km (1.2mi), will be the longest in the state and completion is timed for mid- 2022. The existing harbour will remain operational during all site work. Landscape designs for the project, revealed in November 2020, include a youth plaza, ocean-themed playground, native plants, undulating platforms to represent the story of the Waugal (the Rainbow Serpent), a waterfront promenade, food and beverage opportunities and large shade structures. Residents and visitors will continue to enjoy the natural environment with a coastal path included in the ultimate marina design to maintain a connection with the existing dunes and bushland. Around 8,600 jobs will be created during the estimated 10-15 year construction period and more than 900 ongoing jobs once complete. Second phase completes at Delma UAE: Abu Dhabi Ports has completed the second phase of development at the port of Delma in the Al Dhafra region, Abu Dhabi. Phase one of the new port was inaugurated in 2017 as a modern replacement of the old port. It features a 103m (338ft) long quay for a ferry terminal that meets the commercial and community requirements of Delma Island, a marina with 160 wet berths and 104 dry berths for fishing and recreational craft, a repair yard, an administration building, a fish market – January/February 2021 and a marine fuelling station, making it one of the largest multi-purpose ports in Al Dhafra. The second phase of the development saw the creation of a new breakwater to shelter the northern half of the harbour which, as part of the project, has been dredged to 6m (20ft). A 315m (1,030ft) quay wall, with mooring for 60 vessels, has also been built. 7 EXPERT DOCK BUILDER AND MARINE CONTRACTOR 800-733-5679
