References / Selected Projects

    Since 2006, we have been involved with the development and the production of pontoons and floating systems. Since then, we had the opportunity to accompany many interesting and successful projects. On this page you will find an illustrated selection of these projects.

    AWI-floating research platform (Siberia)

    floating research pontoon in Seberia

    Highly topical is the global warming of our planet. In this context Research Institutions like the “Alfred-Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI)” searches for solutions of this phenomenon. A floating research platform shall be used for this, built by Perebo and AWI in the year 2013.

    Main technical data:

    • dimensions of the platform (L x W): approx. 3,0m x 3,0m
    • supporting structure of the floating platform: plastic floats
    • special features: the platform works independently
    • more information & pictures

      This autarkic floating measurement laboratory measures the exchange of carbon dioxide,methane and heat between a lake and the Earth atmosphere. The lake is located on the island “Kurungnakh” in the Siberian tundra. In the middle of the floating measuring station is a two meter high instrument-mast situated on which the instruments are mounted. In addition two gas sensors, a wind direction sensor and a wind speed meter, includes the equipment a selection of other special devices, like a camera, GPS, electronic compass and a motion sensor too. The power supply is provided by solar panels, which are also installed on the floating micro laboratory. The floating platform consists of 9 PEREBO floats of type PT05 units, which are such robust that they can withstand Siberian ice.

    Floating event platform for “Matchrace” in Waren (Müritz)

    product presentation pontoon

    Especially impressive is a product presentation on the water. PEREBO has demonstrated this at the new “Audi A1 Sport Pack“ presentation at the Matchrace in Matchrace in Waren on the Müritz in 2013. The floating car could be admired at day and night. PEREBO acted as lessor and provided the rentable floating platform.

    Main technical data:

    • length: 6,30m
    • width: 4,20m
    • supporting structure of the floating base: steel pontoons
    • special features: the floating platform consists of several individual pontoons

    coupleable pontoons can be found here: Perebo steel pontoons

    • more information & pictures

      This floating event platform consists of 3 pcs. coupleable individual pontoons (L x W= 4,20m x 2,10m), which can be interconnected easily. Such a floating base is ideal for a presentation of a car or a similar product on the water. The platform can be fixed by ropes or chains. The presentation object is simply attached with lashing straps or the like on the pontoon deck.

    Pump Pontoon (Manchester, UK)

    pump pontoon

    For a coal power plant near Manchester (England), PEREBO has built a floating pump platform in 2007. Two suction pumps are installed on it which provide process water in the course of desulfurization of coal. PEREBO has developed this pontoon and has installed it at the place of use near the coal power plant.

    Main technical data:

    • dimensions of the platform (L x W): approx. 6,0m x 4,0m
    • supporting structure of the floating platform: plastic floats + girder grid made of steel
    • special features: adapted to changing water levels
    • more information & pictures

      The pump pontoon consists of 22 individual floats: type PT01 middle section. A modular support frame out of steel forms the supporting structure of the floating platform. The pontoon is also equipped with a steel-grid surface and a separate access. The main difficulty while planning: the pump pontoon had to be adaptable to changing water levels. For this purpose PEREBO has designed a special fixing structure which allows movements of the pontoon in vertical direction.

    Mobile Sea Target (Airbus Defence & Space)

    Pontonkatamaran mit Mast und Zielprisma

    A floating object that moves on the water shall be simulated with a mobile sea-target. Smaller warships (e.g. frigates) can focus this “sea target” and fire on it during a training maneuver of the marine. In 2009 PEREBO was commissioned by Airbus Defence & Space to design a mobile floating platform for this purpose, which meets these requirements.

    Main technical data:

    • dimensions (L x W): approx. 5,50m x 3,50m
    • supporting structure: plastic pontoon tubes + foldable supporting frame made of steel
    • special features: equipped with telescopic mast incl. radar reflector
    • more information & pictures

      The pontoon (catamaran) will be pulled by a speedboat while using, which is navigated either by a skipper or remote control. In this condition the pontoon width is approx. 3,50m to ensure a stable position in the water. During a shooting exercise a telescopic mast with a radar reflector at the end will be placed on the boat deck. Fully extended, the total mast height is approx. 7,50m. (incl. the height of the radar reflector) But when the pontoon should be stored or should be transported to another place of action, the width of the vessel can be reduced to approx. 2,0m due to the foldable support frame. Furthermore it is possible to move the pontoon on land via laterally attachable wheels. A lifting by crane or helicopter is possible as well. This multifunctional special pontoon meets exactly the requirements which Airbus Defence & Space has been placed to Perebo.

    Floating Sniffer Dog Platform

    police vessel on night drive

    With the order of a so-called “Floating Sniffer Dog Platform” in the form of a pontoon boat a dream of the “Police K-9 unit” in the federal state of Thuringia became a reality in 2006. With the help of this special pontoon boat the sniffer dogs can pick up the scent near water surface. This allows the search for accident victims or dead bodies.

    Main technical data:

    • dimensions of the boat (L x W): approx. 5,50m x 2,50m
    • supporting structure of the boat: plastic pontoon tubes + supporting frame made of aluminum
    • special features: lowerable front and side flaps, inflatable lighting tower
    • more information & pictures

      In 2006 PEREBO received an order from the Thuringian police to build a pontoon boat by which it’s possible to operate with sniffer dogs on water. Inflatable boats have been used before with the problem that the dogs had been lifted during use over the edge of the rubber dinghies, because they can only detect human odors up to 40cm above the water surface. This procedure was very stressful for humans and animals. The dogs can sniff 20cm above the water surface on the PEREBO boat now. The sniffer dog vessel is fully trailerable and has a relative low self-weight. Therefore it is possible to transport it with a helicopter to the place of use if necessary.

    Floating Pipelines

    floating pipeline

    Sometimes pipelines must be built on water temporarily or permanently. In other words, they must swim on the water. For this purpose, PEREBO has already delivered coupleable floating modules often, on which the pipelines are able to swim.

    Main technical data:

    • length: variable
    • width: variable
    • supporting structure of the floating modules: plastic floats + girder grid made of steel or aluminum
    • special features: floating pipeline is executable with joints for more flexibility on water
    • more information & pictures

      All PEREBO floating pipes consist of the individual floats PT03, PT04 or PT05. The floating modules, supplied by PEREBO, can be interconnected easily at respective places of action. On such a special floating dock the corresponding pipeline can be fixed with clamps very simply. Depending on operating conditions, the floating pipeline can be designed movable or stiff. For this purpose, the individual floating modules are either screwed together or coupled with joints. (e.g. hinges or similar)

    Floating Dock at the Lago Maggiore (Italy)

    jetty in T shape

    This beautiful floating jetty is located at the lake “Lago Maggiore” in the north of Milan. It was a common project between PEREBO and the Italian land owner at this lake in 2009. PEREBO has designed, built and delivered all parts of the floating boat dock, the owner has mounted and fixed his floating pier himself.

    Main technical data:

    • dimensions of the jetty (L x W): approx. 20,0m x 1,50m
    • dimensions of the platform in front of: (L x W): approx. 4,50m x 8,0m
    • supporting structure of the floating modules: plastic floats + girder grid made of steel
    • special features: the floating dock is built modular

    more floating jetties can be found here: Perebo-Jetties

    • more information & pictures

      The fishing dock consists of the individual floats PT03. All floating modules (floats + girder grid), supplied by PEREBO to the place of use, could be interconnected easily by the buyer. Furthermore the buyer has mounted the deck flooring and the anchorage by himself as well. Therefore: The more own contribution the more money can be saved.

    Houseboat for the german movie production titled: “Ein Hausboot zum Verlieben”

    a houseboat to fall in love

    „Ein Hausboot zum Verlieben“ (house boat to fall in love) is a German movie production of the year 2009. For the film-set, a house boat, PEREBO has constructed and delivered the floating base. The film production company has built the house on the floating platform. The result of this cooperation was a really comfortable house boat, which left nothing to be desired.

    Main technical data:

    • length: approx. 17m
    • width: approx. 5m
    • supporting structure of the floating base: plastic pontoon tubes + girder grid made of wood
