At the end of January Marinetek NCP began with production of floating pontoons for complete reconstruction of A, B, C and V piers of marina Agana in Marina. This marina has 134 berths divided into 6 piers of a total length of 470m which are equipped to accommodate a boat up to a maximum length of 25m. Marina Agana is located in the central part of Dalmatia, halfway between the Split and Sibenik county centers, on the very bottom of the marina bay and offers a safe and peaceful place with a lot of content that gives boaters a comfortable stay.
Due to the dilapidation of all pontoon elements and equipment, Marinetek has replaced all existing floating piers with new concrete continuous elements, type M3012AC and M3015AC with additional equipment, cleats, wooden bumpers and access bridges. In addition to the replacement of the complete pontoon system, in cooperation with the company Dubina engineering from Split and Elektrolux TS from Šibenik, installation of anchoring systems of piers and vessels, and the construction of a new water supply network and electrical installation were also carried out.

system of steel galvanized carriers
For the anchoring requirements, along with standard concrete anchor blocks, in smaller depths we used geotechnical anchors with required capacity not to jeopardize the required boat gauges The specificity is also the anchoring system of pier “V” which is placed in parallel line with the mound-breakwater and anchored by a system of steel galvanized carriers (“hands”) and with diagonal inox cables to take over the longitudinal forces. Steel supports are fastened on land with pre-made concrete reinforcements, and on pontoon with special acceptors whose anchoring is performed during the production of pontoon elements.
For the anchoring system of vessels we used standard quarter mooring. In line with the needs of the planned vessels and the existing network capacities, a new project for electricity distribution on the piers was created. Also, new service cabinets (type Tango) with adequate connections were installed.
Marinetek performed all the work in accordance with the agreement and provided timely installation of all pontoon elements. Considering that during the construction of the marina’s construction works marina was completely filled with vessels on an annual basis, we provided the installation of all piers successively, with measures of increased precaution and safety at the site of installation and with minimal restriction of regular activities in the marina.
