The installation of a new, 80-berth marina for boats up to 150 feet in length at Abu Dhabi’s JA Jebel Ali Beach Hotel is now complete. The facility replaces a previous marina that was built in 1979 and is comprised of a 119-metre main walkway with three piers coming off it; two of 50 metres and one of 62 metres. The 50 existing piles remained in place, but careful surveying and planning at the outset ensured that minimal modifications were required when fitting the new pontoons.
The installation was managed by a two-man team sent out from the UK. Marina Manager Andy Savill commented that he was very happy with the support provided by Walcon throughout the design and build, and with the finished result.
