Septech Emirates awarded contract to install showcase marina at the prestigious development
Dubai, UAE, Wednesday 6 December 2006: Locally based Septech has been awarded the contract to install over 100-berth ‘showcase’ marina at Dubai Festival City. From its manufacturing facilities in Ajman, Septech will cast concrete pontoons and install them at the site that will provide long-stay berthing for over 100 medium to large vessels and short term and day berthing for small to medium vessels.
Nestled on the Deira side of Dubai creek and bounded by the Dubai Wildlife and Water Bird Sanctuary/Conservation area on the south and the creek on the western edge, Dubai Festival City will be a multi-use development, incorporating shopping and entertainment facilities and high-end hotels. The marina, incorporating 3,000m² of pontoon system and including an aesthetically pleasing 450m² of curved pontoon, will give VIP boat owners the option of parking their cars and availing a direct drive to their private vessel via golf cart.
Septech managing director, David Heffernan said the contract has been described by Festival City developers as a ‘showcase marina’ because of its prime location, superior level of service and capacity to house prestigious vessels in the style of renowned marinas around the world.
