We recently delivered a new order of RotoDock to Totnes Boating Association in Totnes, Devon and this included the installation of some unique piling systems that moor the new RotoDock boat mooring platform. As the location was the Totnes estuary, the benefits of using a floating RotoDock pontoon system for areas such as this is in its ability to create a mooring that rises and falls with the tide.
Piling was secured to the river bed for this pontooon
Along the stretch of estuary where our team helped with the installation of this rising pontoon mooring, the water level can rise and fall each day by an average 2.3m depending on the time of year. This left our team with strict time constraints for performing the installation of this pontoon, as it had to be completed whilst the tide was out, to ensure the piles were completely secured to the river bed.
We used steel piles with this RotoDock moorings
Five steel piles were placed along the rivers edge where the mooring would be fixed, the RotoDock galvanised pile guide, one of the components that are available with RotoDock products, was a key part of this installation. This allowed the RotoDock pontoon platform to be attached safety and securely and gave gave Totnes Boating Association access to the mooring, whatever the tide levels by allowing the platform to rise and fall always remaining on the waters surface.
