The comprehensive redevelopment of Doha’s port took four years to transform a previous combined marina/cargo port into the Old Doha Port, a new tourist destination and marina for yachts and cruise ships. The project comprised the renovation and new construction of over 50 cafés and restaurants, >100 shops and businesses, many with marine activities and water sports, 150 hotel apartments, and a 30-room hotel.
After reviewing a range of waterproofing solutions, PENETRON, a crystalline topical material, was specified for the new marine structures and seawall. Applied as a slurry on prepared concrete surfaces, it creates a waterproof barrier to any further chloride ion penetration to prevent the onset of corrosion of the embedded steel.
