Walcon Marine are the exclusive Australasian partner of the world-renowned Orsta floating wave attenuator and breakwater system.
Floating wave attenuators and breakwaters have been part of successfully protecting marinas for many years. They can provide suitably sheltered conditions for marinas in places where the maximum fetch is approximately 6 kilometers and the maximum wave period is around 4 seconds.
Walcon’s high-quality Orsta attenuators are custom designed specifically for each project location to suit the varying conditions and requirements.
Most importantly, all Orsta wave attenuators are built on site, considerably reducing the cost of shipping.
The key benefit of production on site is that the physical size restraints of transportation are avoided. This enables us to build very large pontoons to the client’s specific length, width and freeboard requirements. Due to on-site production, we are able to build individual pontoons up to 8 metres wide and 1.5 metres freeboard. Transportation costs of large concrete pontoons can be very high, therefore via local production, we can provide the client with significant savings.
