We have been experts in the construction of pontoons for many years. Whether as floating docks for fitting out ships, as jetties for refuelling or as LNG terminals, we are the right partner for all types of concrete pontoons.
We focus on the highest quality and precision. From planning to implementation, you can rely on our specialists and experts.
Milestone in the company’s history.
In 2006, the idea of building a concrete pontoon was implemented for the first time. Due to the ever-increasing price of steel and the advantages such as lower maintenance and servicing costs, concrete was immediately chosen.
In cooperation with the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg the construction of a concrete pontoon with four tanks was created in just four months thus ensuring extraordinary stability in the water. These tanks can be emptied or filled depending on the desired draught. The huge floating body was towed across the Ems and then to its appropriate destination within a few days.
The platform, on which ships are fitted out for faster availability of the shipbuilding hall, quickly proved itself in practice.
And this is how the system works as a floating dock: the ship’s shell is built in the shipyard hall and then very slowly moved out on a roller system, with the pontoon lying in the water lowering to quay level. The shell can then be driven onto the pontoon, which is then moored again across the quay wall. The hall is then ready for the next shell while the ship can be fitted out on the pontoon.
In 2021, the first concrete pontoon was manufactured for a major global mineral oil and natural gas company. This is located in the Energy and Chemicals Park Rheinland in Godorf and is used as a jetty for refuelling inland vessels.
