THE MEDIA VOICE OF THE GLOBAL MARINA INDUSTRY

Joint connector enhances breakwater performance

The design for the Astra semi-flexible rubber joint for connecting concrete floating breakwater modules has been purchased by Chinese marina builder Livart Marine. The technical transfer was made in 2022.

Developed by Spanish engineers, the joint adjusts the strength of the connection by changing the number of rubber blocks, allows for small amplitude movement and energy absorption, and is easy to assemble.
Thanks to the Astra connection design, Livart Marine’s floating concrete breakwaters are now designed with a hydrodynamic approach to provide the best attenuation for wind and waves. All breakwaters are structurally designed in accordance with Euro 2, and manufacturing quality is assured under ISO 9001:2015 standards.
Custom manufacturing enables Livart to design and fabricate for every configuration and thus minimise stress on structural joints even in the roughest conditions.
