Abstract: Scope of this lecture is the presentation of the methodology applied for the design of the New Paralimni Marina’s port infrastructure, located 5km to the east of Paralimni town, Cyprus. The Marina’s basin is composed of a main a lee breakwater of a total length of 650m and 100m respectively. In addition, the Design envisages the installation of floating piers of a total length of 720m, as well as the construction of quay walls of a total length of 500m, in order to accommodate approx. 300 vessels. In the context of the Project’s Design, extensive research and field work was carried out by locally established consultancy firms, under the coordination and supervision of TRITON. The design of the marina structures was made by applying both the Eurocode and the directions of Cypriot appendages, in combination with the internationally acceptable compositions and standards for the design of marine infrastructure. A combination of elaborate Mathematical and Physical modelling was applied in the case of the Marina’s Design. For the determination of the main characteristics of the specific marine structures, available wind and wave recording were used covering a period of 40-years, to evaluate prevailing wave climate in the wider offshore area and close to the Project’s location. A coastal study was carried out to investigate marine works’ effect on the adjacent shoreline morphology, as well as an environmental study to assess rate of water resonance within the new basin, by using elaborate software.
