Ismailia contract awarded

EGYPT: Following an intensive period of preparation and design, Marinetek has been selected for the design, manufacture and installation of the floating pontoon elements for Ismailia Yacht Marina on Al Temsah Lake, the first marina on the Suez Canal (see article Marina World March/April 2023).

After completion of the first phase, the sailing club will have 96 berths for vessels of 10-40m (33-131ft) in length. A total of 34 concrete ‘Heavy Duty’ and ‘Breakwater’ pontoon types will be produced in Marinetek’s factory in Šibenik, Croatia by the end of this month (May), transported to Egypt and installed using steel piles.
The Suez Canal Authority, the project investor, plans to open the first phase of the marina by the end of June and, in subsequent phases, a modern service centre and other related facilities will be built. Marinetek’s partner in the project, Deutschland Technology, will take over the installation of the entire infrastructure and the management of the project itself.
The marina will encourage smaller yachts to stop and rest in the Suez Canal on their way between the Mediterranean and the Red Sea and is a significant step in the country’s aim to further develop its nautical tourism.
