Novowood is a composite material (WPC), 70% made of wood natural fibers and 30% made of Polyethylene. It can be used for products of different shapes and colors, still maintaining the elegance of wood and the advantages of a not completely natural material.
Marina d'Arechi (Salerno)
Novowood is proud to have participated in the realization of this massive project.
The marina is separated from the coast by a channel about 70 meters wide and it is connected to ground via vehicular and pedestrian bridges.
With its 1000 berths from 10 to over 80 meters, it is one of the largest marina in the Mediterranean.
