The historical Gateway of India is Bombay’s iconic harbour-side destination, located next to the famous Taj Mahal hotel and the Royal Bombay Yacht Club. Tourists, hotel guests, private boat owners and yachtsmen regularly use the quay to embark / disembark from boats. Marinetek delivered a safe and convenient solution for the many users by installing a floating jetty accessed from the quay by an aluminium gangway.

The heavy concrete pontoons were most appropriate choice for the semi-exposed location, providing a more stable platform for people to walk on. Marinetek India supplied and installed the six Premier pontoons for the project, connecting them end-to-end and side-by-side to make a 24m x 6m floating jetty. The installation required a special design to cater for mooring the jetty in strong tidal current and to allow for a 6m rise and fall of tide levels. Special flexible connectors were provided to allow controlled flexing of the jetty in waves.
