Traneberg Yacht Club revisited

Seaflex revisits one of the first commercial installations in the world

Installed in the early 1980’s, this Traneberg marina is indeed one of the oldest installations done with Seaflex. Recently, we traveled to Traneberg to meet up with harbormaster Bosse Grönqvist to see how the mooring system is holding up. To our delight, the original 1980’s Seaflex mooring system is still performing as intended, despite minimal maintenance needed over the past 30 years!

“Traneberg Marina is situated in a protected location but experiences heavy swells from passing passenger boats and ferries but Seaflex has performed as designed for this location”, says harbormaster Bosse Grönqvist. Before Seaflex was installed, conventional chain was used and this demanded a great deal of maintenance due to the corrosion of the chain. “The greatest difference between chain and Seaflex at our location is the less need of maintenance work”.

Traneberg Yacht Club has a scheduled maintenance plan. They control galvanized shackles at the fastening points on pontoons every 5 years and control of wear and tear of stainless parts every 20 years. Bosse estimates the need for maintenance on Seaflex is 75 % less than with conventional chain mooring.

“Seaflex is, with a design adapted to location and correct installation, a complete alternative to other mooring systems. Above all, Seaflex is almost maintenance free”, states Bosse.

He describes the Seaflex mooring system with these words:

“Reliable, Stainless, Intelligent and Smart solution”
