Ana Marina in Nha Trang, the first-ever marina in Vietnam, received 77 pontoons direct from the pre-casting yard in Johor Bahru in Malaysia. This represented one of Marineteks largest single pontoon shipments to date and comprised a mix of seven different pontoon types including Super Yacht pontoons for a fuel dock and a breakwater.

RHKYC Sailing Manager Ailsa Angus was at Ana Marina last week for a site visit in advance of the 2019 edition of the Hong Kong to Vietnam Race. The pontoons were delivered to the marina while we were there, and there should be at least one pier ready by the time the race gets there. The place is pretty amazing and all of the land side is completed already. Definitely something for the Vietnam Race crews to look forward to.

The first half of 2019 has been extraordinarily busy on the project delivery side and underlines our ability not only to work on demanding projects simultaneously but also deliver to schedule making best use of our extensive network of industry professionals, says Marinetek CEO Mika Parviainen. Our factories are now rapidly filling up the free storage space as we progress other contracts, he noted. At the same time as the Ana Marina pontoons were being delivered, Marinetek were shipping from Latvia to Grenada and casting 5m x 20m pontoons in the Middle East. Busy, busy.

In case you didn't know, Marinetek is a leading designer and turnkey builder of yacht marinas and floating structures that is well known for its large concrete pontoons and ability to undertake wide-ranging projects worldwide. The company has an impressive track record with over 2,000 reference projects in fifty countries.
