Swedish Riviera marina rebuilds and reconfigures

Skänors Hamn, a marina just south of Malmö in Sweden, has been rebuilt and reconfigured by SF Marina. The owners sought to increase mooring capacity and create infrastructure that was better sheltered from rolling seas generated by the occasional 21m/s northerly breeze.

Prior to the reconstruction, Skanörs Hamn had two main piers with Mediterranean-style mooring and space for additional boats along the harbour basin wall. The docking process was overly burdensome to boat owners, especially those with outboard engines who found it challenging to safely board and disembark their vessels.
The configuration comprises four main jetties. One – at 50m (164ft) long x 3.25m (11ft) wide – is constructed using SF1230 floating concrete pontoons. The remaining three have been built using series SF1030 pontoons and measure 50m (164ft), 52m (171ft) and 55m (180ft) long x 3.25m (11ft) wide. The pontoons were installed by SF Pontona Sweden who added finger docks and Y-boom fingers with floats to accommodate approximately 120 boats. The pontoons are secured using 200mm (8in) and 400mm (16in) piles.
SF Marina floating steel-reinforced concrete pontoons are claimed to be virtually unsinkable and have a low centre of gravity, making them extremely stable. A unique connection system allows the individual pontoons to dilute loads generated by wave action or bumps from heavy vessels. The pontoons include integrated utility ducts for power and water.
In addition to the main dock array, SF Pontona Sweden also delivered and installed a dinghy dock on the quay adjacent to the launch ramp. It further removed the chain and concrete block anchoring of a smaller dock it had added several years ago and replaced it with piles.
Skanör is known for its sandy beaches and rows of colourful cottages and is often referred to as the Swedish Riviera.
