Conwy Marina received an upgrade to its ‘waiting’ jetty earlier this year. The new pontoon is now in constant use, providing water users a safe and secure place to wait for entrance into the marina.
We installed a Continuous Concrete Pontoon (CCP), increasing berthing and load capacity for larger vessels. With greater wave reduction and stability properties, the system also requires less maintenance.
Due to varying water levels between the outer harbour and marina basin, access to the 500-berth marina is via a tidal sill.
“The large tidal range in the estuary here often causes the holding pontoon to ground at low water springs,” says Jon Roberts, Conwy Marina Manager.
“Inland and Coastal’s continuous pontoon design works perfectly. The attention to detail also made the installation process extremely efficient. The work progressed during specific tidal gates without interfering with daily operations and I am delighted with the quality of the new structure.’’
“Our customers’ first impression of the marina comes from their experience on the waiting pontoon. The new pontoon, with its additional safety features and the reangled ramp to give less steep walk ashore access, make me confident that we are giving the best welcome possible.”
“Conwy is a stunning part of the coastline,” says Oliver Shortall, Inland and Coastal Managing Director.
“We were delighted to provide a robust ‘waiting’ jetty. Our concrete pontoons have double the lifespan of wooden ones. The solid surfaces also offer much better grip properties – especially when wet.”
