AP&M Floating Breakwater Best Performing during recent NSW Storms| 24.4.2015
The recently installed AP&M designed floating breakwater system for Burraneer Bay Marina, has far outperformed all other commercial marina products during the recent NSW storms. Facing sustained 1.4m waves and 100km winds over 3 days, the AP&M breakwater system suffered zero damage and protected the marina while other marina products suffered significant damage to vessels and structures. The AP&M system designed by Joshua Parsons was created to specifically withstand 1 in 100 year storms like the category 2 cyclone conditions experienced in the Port Hacking and greater Sydney region over 3 days in late April 2015. Burraneer Bay Marina were very happy with the performance of the newly installed system which is the 1st of a 4 stage marina development planned for 2015 including a 50T boat lift and raised hardstand and extensions to the existing commercial marinas system. Zero maintenance was required post the storms and while other commercial marina owners are now currently contacting their insurance companies, Burraneer Bay Marina continues with business as usual. Contact AP&M to design a product to suit your unique environmental conditions.
