SF Marina Builds Breakwaters in Harsh Seas

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Norway is known for its harsh winter storms.  When Skjærhalden Båtforening needed to expand its marina, it was forced to move outside the fixed breakwater and face up to 5 ft waves.  SF Marina USA's Norwegian partner SF Pontona Norge AS was willing to install a harbor at this exposed location. 

Providing mooring space for 130 more boats, SF Pontona employed SF Marina USA SF 400 Concrete Breakwaters, as well as SF 1030 and SF 1024 Concrete Docks.  Designed to attenuate the most aggressive seas, versatile SF Marina USA products are constructed from reinforced concrete and styrofoam for unmatched strength, stability and buoyancy.  Engineered to withstand ice-stress, they have a service life of 30-50 years.
 
In the winter of 2008 after days of hard, 34 mph winds, Skjærhalden Båtforening's new harbor was put to the test as storm Tuva moved in with 67 mph winds.  Even in these extreme conditions, SF Marina's breakwaters remained within the regulated area and continued to attenuate the waves.
