Lough Derg Marina
Lough Derg Marina in Killaloe, Co Clare, Ireland has more than 500m of water frontage and panoramic views over the lake and adjoining countryside. Killaloe has become an extremely popular residential location in the region due to its beauty. Additional berths at Lough Derg Marina were contracted to help meet demand.
McNiven Marine had originally planned to use chain for this project, but due to the large scope of the chain and the potential for boats to impact it, chain was not an option. Piles were considered but were expensive and would have looked out of place with the sleekness of the rest of the marina.
Concrete blocks with Hazelett elastics were used to provide a shorter mooring scope and enhance the visual on the marina.
A successful Ronautica pontoon/Hazelett mooring system installation was completed that enables the marina to be fully operational.
