With demand exceeding supply for berthing facilities in Stornoway, we were asked to install our standard marina walkway and finger pontoons as part of Stornoway Port Authority’s 2017 Masterplan, which sets out the development of Stornoway Port over the next 20 years.
|Client||Stornoway Port Authority|
|Date||Date: Installed September 2020|
|Where||Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides|
Our GRP mini mesh decked pontoons will provide the much-needed additional marina pontoon berths, all with excellent anti slip properties.
Situated on the Isle of Lewis, the marina’s location made access to the mainland and construction plant challenging.
Being in the Hebrides also had its logistical issues when it came to installation, but we always find a solution. Assembling the pontoons offsite helped timewise and reduced the amount of specialist machinery needed in-situ.
Local and visiting leisure craft to Stornoway Harbour are now enjoying the new 76 berth marina, protected by a state-of-the-art breakwater. 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.
