BELLINGHAM MARINE HELPS MARINA PRESERVE LEGACY
December 16, 2003
Located at Walsh Bay on Sydney Harbour in Australia, the Walsh Bay—Pier 6/7 Moorings have historical significance as a former commercial wharf. A challenging project completed by Bellingham Marine allows boaters to enjoy expansive views from the renovated piers on Walsh Bay.
Bellingham Marine first installed two skirted Unifloat® wave attenuators to protect the area. The attenuators incorporate gangways from the timber boardwalks to provide public access to water taxis and sewage pump-out facilities. Also designed for Walsh Bay—Pier 6/7 were individual Unifloat® docks that serve as shared berths for boats up to 20m.
Bellingham’s unique stainless steel pile mooring bars with nylon thimbles help secure boats to the dock. Central pivoting brackets attach each dock’s gangway to the boardwalks to accommodate lateral and vertical movement caused by the boat traffic on the busy Sydney Harbor.
The restoration project on Walsh Bay includes boardwalks, apartments, a car park built below the water level of the harbour, private moorings, gymnasiums and swimming pools for residents. Restaurants, theatres and other commercial shops and businesses are incorporated into the extended Walsh Bay precinct.
Bellingham Marine designs, manufactures and installs floating dock systems and dry storage buildings for marinas and boat facilities worldwide.
