Next year, local and visiting leisure craft to Stornoway Harbour will be enjoying a new 76 berth marina, protected by a state-of-the-art breakwater.
With demand currently exceeding supply for berthing facilities in Stornoway, we’re installing our standard marina walkway and finger pontoons as part of Stornoway Port Authority’s 2017 Masterplan. Our GRP minimesh decked pontoons will provide the much-needed additional marina berths, all with excellent anti-slip properties.
Situated on the Isle of Lewis, the marina’s location makes access to the mainland and construction plant challenging.
“Being in the Hebrides has its logistical issues when it comes to installation, but we always find a solution,” explains Brian Curley, Inland and Coastal Senior Project Manager. “Assembling the pontoons offsite really helps timewise and reduces the amount of specialist machinery needed in-situ.”
“This exciting project will also incorporate a new slipway and boat hoist, enabling the marina to offer boat yard services to visitors and port users,” continues Brian. “We are delighted to be involved in such a prominent project in Scotland, which will be enjoyed by locals, sailors from aboard and the wider community long into the future.”
