Second contract for 2024 Olympics

FRANCE: Poralu Marine is to supply and install floating docks for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games dinghy, catamaran and keelboat competitions at Roucas-Blanc Marina in Marseilles (CGI below). The contract follows its successful bid in June 2021 to upgrade the rowing basin and sprint race course on Vaires Torcy Lake in Vernes-sur-Marne.

At Roucas-Blanc, Poralu will build 405m (1,330ft) of floating docks (including 15 footbridges) and 18m (59ft) of overhanging docks (attached to the quay). Delivery will be in the third quarter of this year.
For Vaires Torcy, the company removed and recycled former rowing installations, improved the slipway, built, supplied and commissioned new international standard floating installations, and supplied and installed automatic starting gates.
Poralu is very familiar with work for rowing competitions and the Olympics. It designed and built infrastructure for the 2012 London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, the 2010 Singapore Youth Olympic Games, the 2001 Rowing World Championships in Lucerne, Switzerland, the 2009 Junior Rowing World Championships in Brive-la-Gaillarde and the 1997 Rowing World Championships on Lake Aiguebelette.
