Industrial Docking Systems Product Overview

A complete line of heavy duty, all-concrete single-cast designs with an EPS styrofoam core and protected steel reinforcements. The heavy mass and thick walled concrete structures offer stability and longevity. They are low maintenance and accommodate large vessels and environmental forces, including impacts, high winds, waves and harsh winter ice. From tenders, to large tugs fishing vessels and ferries, we have an unsinkable solution.

Technical Considerations

  • Freeboard heights from 10” to 54”
  • Widths from 8′ to 32’
  • Ferry landings, commercial berthing, municipal docking for fire and police crafts
  • Heavy loading capacity for forklifts, vehicles, structures
  • A thick, reinforced concrete deck surface accommodates internal utilities, lighting, small cranes, mooring bollards, and large capacity equipment
  • Can accept fender systems of all sizes and impact rating
  • Anchoring systems include chain and bottom anchors, pile mooring, and helical with elastic rode mooring systems
  • Customizable lengths up to 100’ single cast units with angle joints
  • Proven cable connector system for endless dock lengths

Fire Department of New York

  • NYC, New York
  • 2010-2014
  • 1230 multiple lengths

The FDNY and NYPD have multiple waterfront facilities around the greater New York area. With a 24-hour, year-round operation, the docking system serves a large range of vessels and operators, so it needs to be robust and low maintenance. SF Marina Systems is pleased to have supplied our dock systems.

SF 1500 Project

Yorktown National Parks Service

  • Yorktown, Virginia
  • 2006
  • Type 1560 925’ X 20’, 30” Freeboard, Heavy Chain Anchoring

“The system was completed in 2006 and has weathered two category-two hurricanes and four major “Nor'easters” with minimal damage. The system has out performed the counties expectations”

The 1560, large vessel transient pier, 924’ long x 20’ wide 30” freeboard, is fitted with HD fender and bollards, and a large diameter chain anchoring system.

The Yorktown National Park was in need of a large vessel pier for visiting transient boats, small cruise ships, regional tour boats and tall ships. The depth of the water, sharp drop from shore and fierce currents inhibited a fixed pier solution. SF Marina Systems and Coastal Design and Construction developed a less costly all-floating system which accommodates up to 400’ vessels, with 55mph squall conditions. The location has a 27 mile fetch, and regularly experiences 6' waves.

Laeso, Denmark Commercial Fishing Pier

  • Laeso, Denmark
  • 2004
  • Two 1840 post-tensioned in parallel to form a single work dock

The City of Laeso, Denmark required a cost effective solution to expand the port's fishing and commercial docks. The parallel 1800 solution from SF Marina Systems proved to be a successful solution. With a floating work pier, the vessels do not have to adjust their lines as the tide fluctuates.
