Walcon in Egypt

Walcon in Egypt

Walcon Marine Australia is supplying a turnkey marina installation for one of Egypt’s premier resort developments; Marassi, located 140 km west of Alexandria on its Mediterranean coast. The project involves equipping a new man-made inner harbour currently being completed with a range of berthing options. These combine finger pontoons mounted on piers with pontoons running alongside the harbour walls for larger vessels. In all, the 23 separate docks will accommodate up to 228 leisure craft up to 45 metres in length, all in fully serviced berths.

The marina is being built using heavy duty and extra heavy-duty versions of Walcon’s System 2000 aluminium walkway and finger pontoons. These are fitted with highly durable walnut WPC decking and continuous fender protection. To add a touch of exclusivity, the five and ten-tonne cleats fitted to the pontoons are all Marassi branded. The marina is held in place by 186 steel piles, each protected from the sun and salt by HDPE sleeves and conical caps. Access to the docks is via 25, specially designed gangways, also decked in the walnut-effect, long lasting and environmentally friendly, WPC material.

The Marassi coastal development includes five stunning beaches, 23 residential village estates, over 3000 quality hotel rooms, an international standard 18-hole golf layout and of course, a state-of-the-art-marina facility with completion expected in mid July 2021.
