Taqah is a coastal town in southwestern Oman that enjoys a busy fishing industry reliant on small boats powered by outboard engines. Marina pontoons were the ideal solution for convenient and safe berthing, and Marinetek worked with Turkish contracting group STFA to build a new harbour that would be a big asset to the local community.

Concrete pontoons were the most appropriate product for the project due to their low maintenance requirements and resistance to high summer temperatures up to 50°C and humidity up to 90%. The marina consists of two fish-landing pontoon to offload the catch and a 16 berth marina.

The 20 m x 6 m, 80-ton float units used to build the marina were transported 1,600 km by road.
