WORLD NEWS The perfect dovetail: the MYP and WMC 2016 NETHERLANDS: Strong interest is building for the Marina & Yard Pavilion (MYP) at METSTRADE 2016 and the ICOMIA World Marina Conference (WMC). The events dovetail on Thursday 17th November – the final day of METSTRADE – when WMC delegates have access to the MYP for networking and refreshments. The MYP will move to a new home in the RAI halls in order to be adjacent to the impressive Atrium complex where the conference takes place. Exhibitor bookings to date already match the record-breaking total for 2015, which augurs well for the best ever pavilion experience. WMC kicks off with keynote speaker Adjiedi Bakas, an acclaimed trend watcher, author and speaker. He researches financial, social, cultural, economic, technological and spiritual trends and interprets these for an array of clients. During his keynote, he will focus on the marina industry and share his vision on future developments. The two-day conference programme will then continue to explore current issues relating to marina developments, regulations, management and operations, and public/ private sector unification under the umbrella theme of ‘the future of marinas in a changing world’. Networking and social events include a welcome dinner at the Harbour Club, Amsterdam and canal boat tour, and a site visit to three leading marinas in northern Holland. WMC 2016 is organised by RAI Amsterdam in partnership with the ICOMIA Marinas Group and the HISWA Holland Marine Industry Association. Marinetek (Finland) is the platinum sponsor; Seaflex (Sweden), Poralu (France) and D-Marin (Turkey) are gold sponsors; and Roodberg (Netherlands) and Marina Planet (Italy) are silver sponsors. Marina World is the media partner for both WMC 2016 and the MYP at METSTRADE. Delegate registration for WMC is open and early bird discounts are available until 1st August. Further information: Putiki Bay marina proposed NEW ZEALAND: Kennedy Point Boatharbour Ltd has released preliminary conceptual design plans for a marina of around 200 berths proposed for Kennedy Point in Putiki Bay on the southwest side of Waiheke Island. Leading New Zealand marina developer Tony Mair and an expert team of specialist consultants are conferring with interested parties on the concept designs and preparing an application for resource consent. Mair and his team have successfully completed numerous marina projects over the last 37 years. “The plans have been developed to minimise the impact to the proposed site and to offer benefits to the Waiheke boating community,” he says. Waiheke Island is approximately 17.7km (11 miles) from Auckland. Designed around a natural deep water harbour, the Kennedy Point marina basin will require no initial dredging and no maintenance dredging due to the natural water depth and the flushing benefits of the proposed breakwater design. In a first for New Zealand, a car park structure for 80 cars will be built on large floating concrete pontoons, and stormwater run-off will be managed through a treatment and filtration system. The car park structure is to be manufactured offsite and then towed into position to minimise effects of construction and avoid the need for any reclamation. The car park will sit lower in the water than the existing and proposed breakwaters and the boats moored in the marina. The design will not affect the intertidal zone as the floating structures will be at least 100m (328ft) away from the foreshore, allowing existing waterbased activities to continue without impact. The marina will be located adjacent to the existing rock breakwater, which currently protects commercial vehicle ferries. The site has already been modified with marine structures and commercial developments. All materials for the project – including the rock for the breakwaters, the floating marina piers and piles, and concrete car park pontoons – will be brought in by barge to minimise noise and local disruption. The marina office, storage, visitor facilities and proposed clubrooms will also be floating; an approach that has proven successful at sites such as Orakei Marina in Okahu Bay. The completion of the new marina would open up a new market of visitors to the island by offering short-term moorings and overnight trailer boat parking. It would relieve some of the pressure of overcrowding in the island bays during the summer, enhance the destination appeal of Waiheke and have a positive economic impact on the area. Kennedy Point Boatharbour Ltd has signed a consultation agreement with Ngati Paoa Group Holdings Ltd acknowledging the iwi’s cultural and historical association with the island. - July/August 2016 15
