Aker Brygge Marina, Oslo, Norway

Aker Brygge Marina has created a new hub for Aker Brygge, which is Oslo’s premier seafront visitor attraction. It was built by Marinetek in a single phase using 5 m-wide Super Yacht Pontoons and 5 m-wide breakwater sections. The Super Yacht Pontoon, used in projects such as Palm Jumeirah Marina and Port Hercules, was launched in Scandinavia via this project. Aker Brygge features a generously proportioned 15 m wide floating main walkway with a 5 m wide pontoon extension. All berths within the marina basin are 3 m in pontoon width with mooring fingers.

Work was undertaken in co-operation with Marinetek’s Norwegian distributor, Nordocks, and all pontoons were manufactured at Marinetek factories in Finland, Sweden and Latvia. Production started in June, installation commenced in October and completion was achieved to schedule in December 2013. The Aker Brygge site attracts around 12 million visitors every year and is thus a very high profile showcase for Marinetek.
