DOCKSIDE PEDESTALS & LIGHTING Swift take-up for Harbour Commander Over the past few months, the team at Croatia-based Marex Elektrostroj has been concentrating on fine tuning the development of its all-new Harbour Commander system. Claimed to elevate the management of electricity and water in marinas to a whole new level, the product is now available in two versions. Harbour Commander measures the electricity and water used by each individual boating customer and allows payment to be made in advance or after usage. Marinas can opt for either an Online or Offline version to best suit their requirements. In the Online version, all the power pedestals are connected with the marina office and the current status of every unit can be viewed on an interactive map. This is backed up by a database containing details of the consumption of individual users (the user identifies himself with an RFID card), information about each of the connectors, and alarms and status checks for the condition of the equipment. The system can also generate email notifications or warnings, connect to cash register software, automatically change to one of many different languages and remotely control all pedestals. Harbour Commander Offline, by contrast, is entirely autonomous. The user identifies himself with an RFID card that holds information on the amount of credit available. Credit levels can be checked at any pedestal as the system measures usage per person/ card and not per pedestal. The credit reading is protected using a secure algorithm and any unused amounts can be refunded to the customer. The new system is already provoking interest on Marex’s home market. Five gold anchor rated marina ACI Rovinj has been refitted with 22 of the company’s Mega Tango and 53 Tango pedestals fitted with Harbour Commander Online, and the port authority at Mali Lošinj has opted for the Offline version to accompany its Global expansion builds momentum Tango units. Over 150 power pedestals have also been recently installed at ACI Marina Šimuni, Marina Agana, ACI Marina Piškera and ACI Marina Rab. E: Maricer’s growth in the global market gained significant pace in the third quarter of this year with projects in Australia, the Falkland Islands and Dubai. Having placed an initial order with Maricer’s partner Dash Symons for 40 Europa service pedestals, Sanctuary Cove Marine on the Gold Coast, Australia, became a returning customer. Happy with the quality and performance of the installed pedestals, the marina ordered a further 20 units. It is unusual for power pedestal manufacturers to secure orders in the Falkland Islands but Maricer was contracted to manufacture and supply ten bespoke pedestals for a project in Port Stanley. The client asked for a ‘hybrid’ product that offers distribution of metered power to remote points and at pedestal source via socket outlets. In the Middle East, Maricer won a noteworthy order for the newly refurbished Jebel Ali Beach Hotel & Golf Resort in Dubai. Europa pedestals with a striking silver anodised matt finish were selected for the new 80- berth marina that caters for vessels up to 45m (148ft) in length. Installation at Jebel Ali was carried out by one of Maricer’s two-man teams who were sent from the UK to work with the support of Maricer’s Dubai-based partners. Marina manager, Andy Savill, was impressed with the result. “The support provided by Maricer throughout the design and build process was excellent, with all involved being great ambassadors for their company,” he said. Maricer’s Nigel Draper speaks positively about the mood in the UK company. “With the completion of Jebel Ali Marina and two further large overseas projects currently on our order books, these are really exciting times,” he noted. “Being awarded these prestigious projects further enhances our presence as a true global supplier of high quality products and services Tango pedestals are available in different versions. Europa pedestals at Jebel Ali Marina, Dubai. that afford value for money.” “Our research and development department is working tirelessly developing new products which will be launched over the coming weeks,” he continued.
