Pontoon floating pier
[Definition] A floating structure that is connected to one or more pontoon so that the ship can berth regardless of the tide in the place with severe tide level differences. The Pontoon is connected to the anchor by a chain, and there are a lateral pier and longitudinal pier types. It is difficult to increase the overhead load due to the lack of support as it is a floating body. It is usually convenient for passenger transportation. It is suitable for places where the water depth is high or the ground with a weak flow of wave or tide, or the ground with soft soil.
