Project Summary

Providing protection to the inner harbour from the waves of Port Phillip Bay in Victoria, Australia, we installed a 426.5m floating concrete attenuator consisting of 23 of our breakwater units, moored on piles.

Not only is this the longest breakwater we’ve manufactured, comprising 11 x 22m, 3 x 16.5m and 9 x 15m long units, it’s also the widest.

The site is exposed to a high wave climate which required 6m wide breakwaters to offer the stability and protection needed.

Known as the Wangim Walk, our breakwater forms one of Australia’s longest on-water walkways, providing a safe harbour for the Royal Geelong Yacht Club as well as a tourist attraction. It allows visitors to literally ‘walk on water’ with the hope that it will help drive economic recovery for the area post covid.
