New Sydney Seaplane Terminal Built on PENETRON

Durable home for seaplanes: The new Rose Bay Terminal was built entirely over seawater. PENETRON crystalline technology renders the concrete impervious to chloride penetration.

All pre-cast concrete elements treated with PENETRON’s crystalline technology are now protected from chloride penetration by seawater splashing just below the precast segments.

Completed in June 2017, a new terminal brings the beloved Sydney Seaplane back to Rose Bay. PENETRON ADMIX was used in the precast elements to ensure impermeability for a structure built wholly over seawater.

Roads and Maritime Services and Sydney Seaplanes have recently upgraded the seaplane facility at Lyne Park, Rose Bay, which is located less than four miles (seven km) from the downtown skyline of Sydney. The restoration and construction of the new Rose Bay Terminal were based on massive, pre-cast concrete elements built entirely over seawater. The all-new terminal overlooks the Rose Bay Wharf area and serves breakfast, oysters and prawns in the upstairs Empire Lounge.

The upgrade to the Rose Bay seaplane facility brings numerous benefits to the Sydney region, including:

  •     Maintaining a historic site
  •     Improved services for seaplane customers
  •     Enhancing a valued tourism asset

“Sydney Seaplanes is one of our most popular and well-known attractions in the Sydney area. Built on pylons over the water, the company’s new Rose Bay Terminal was designed with durability in mind,” says Steve Hodkinson, General Manager PENETRON Australia. “All pre-cast concrete elements treated with PENETRON’s crystalline technology are now protected from chloride penetration by seawater splashing just below the precast segments.”
