Lough Rinn


Project Summary

As part of Leitrim County Council’s plans to develop Lough Rinn to be a FISA standard rowing course, we worked with Deane Public Works to design and install start and finish line floating pontoons for the racing.

Crucial to judging who crosses the line first is a stable pontoon, which maintains its exact plan position in the water. To meet this challenge, we used our standard marina pontoons and connected the units to piles with guides, allowing up and down movement but minimal motion in other planes.

With Lough Rinn now ready to host national and international rowing regattas, the local rowing clubs can benefit from training at a world class facility while the community can expect an influx of athletes, supports and spectators, when restrictions allow, bringing vital revenue to the local economy.

As part of this exciting project we also manufactured a T-shaped fishing pontoon attached to the shore, giving fishing enthusiasts safe access to the water and diversifying the usage of this scenic lake.
