Boosting berths in Roskilde
Roskilde Havn (Harbour), around 65km (40mi) west of Copenhagen, Denmark recently installed a 240m (787ft) SF Marina floating concrete dock. The expansion provides wave dampening protection and offers mooring for over 40 vessels.Installed by SF Pontona, the layout comprises a 105m (344ft) long x 3m (10ft) wide angled dock and a walkway, made up of six SF1024 pontoons, that adds 12 slips. This terminates at the centre of a straight 135m (443ft) long x 6m (20ft) dock section of seven SF1040 pontoons offering 30 moorings. All finger piers are 10m (33ft) long to serve a wide range of vessel lengths.
Large vessels can be moored parallel to the dock on the fjord side and a new angled section that dampens wave action has also been connected to an older part of the marina.
Established in 1972, Roskilde Havn offers ramp and crane launching, 310 wet berths and a marine service centre. It hosts sailing and rowing clubs and a Viking ship museum. The fjord itself has 30 islands and inlets to explore and is a Danish national park.
