Portuguese company supplies floating dock for boats to moor on Angolan beach

1 July 2014

Portuguese company Lindley recently supplied a floating dock to be installed at Baba beach in Namibe province, Angola, the company said in a statement.

The project, which was assembled in May 2014, included design, manufacture and assembly of a floating dock with room for eight leisure boats to moor.

The dock, which provides water and electricity to the vessels, is made up of a 36-metre galvanized steel walkway, and is accessed by a steel bridge.

Work to build a breakwater, onshore construction work, logistics and transport were provided by Angolan companies Omatapalo and Andaimes Carvalho, based in the city of Lubango and with which Lindley carried out the entire project.

Lindley is specialised in the supply, installation and maintenance of floating equipment for marinas, leisure docks and commercial ports and is part of a larger group of the same name. (macauhub/PT/AO)
