Jersey marina invests in rebuild

CHANNEL ISLANDS: Walcon Marine has completed a comprehensive like-for-like rebuild of St Helier Marina in Jersey. The project retains around 250 berths across seven piers for boats up to 25m (82ft) in length, and alongside visitor berthing.

Main contractor Geomarine undertook work between September 2021 and May 2022, during which the entire floating infrastructure was removed and replaced. Five of the seven new piers were built using Walcon’s aluminium System 2000 pontoons and the other two, in a more exposed location, constructed from System 21 steel docks. Walcon also supplied the walkways, finger pontoons and wall columns. Geomarine refurbished and reinstalled the two access bridges.
“It was a pleasure to be working with the Ports of Jersey and local contractor Geomarine once again,” said Walcon managing director James Walters. “We have worked with Geomarine on a number of projects over the years, including the recent works at Albert Dock in St Helier, and the cooperation is always excellent.”
St Helier Marina opened in 1981 and this £3.5 million investment is its first major refurbishment.
