Mayflower installs mobile pump-out Award-winning Mayflower Marina in Plymouth on the south coast of England is now offering black and grey water pump-out for berth holders and visitors. The marina management team selected the LSM80W (right); a relatively small, completely mobile system from Warwickshire-based LeeSan. The unit meets current demands and, in the future, could form part of a larger, permanent pump-out facility if demand grows. When pump-out is requested, marina staff wheel the unit to the berth, pump out the tank and return the unit to the marina’s dedicated sewer discharge point for emptying. A standpipe and pump-out connector ensure that discharge is clean and efficient and the ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT MDL invests in EV charge points Following its pioneering pilot launch of Tesla electric vehicle (EV) charging points at several of its marinas, MDL is now rolling the programme out to a second batch of its UK marinas. The programme also saw units installed at Sant Carles Marina in June making MDL Marinas the first operator in Spain to offer such a service. The new units have been installed at: Shamrock Quay; Mercury; Northney; Penton Hook; Woolverstone; and Windsor (16 amp). In addition to the Tesla chargers, Type 2 Universal chargers have also been fitted at the sites (excluding Windsor and Penton Hook) to power up other models of electric cars. Last year, the company introduced EV charging points at Ocean Village Porto di Santa Teresa Gallura - awarded with 4 Blue Stars unit can be flushed through after use. The LeeSan system is purpose built from stainless steel and plastic materials so as to withstand the elements in a coastal environment and is housed in its own covered storage area. Mayflower Marina managing director, Charles Bush, said: “Customer experience is paramount; from a helpful and friendly welcome to offering a one stop solution for everyone’s boating requirements. We Marina, Cobb’s Quay Marina, Queen Anne’s Battery and Hamble Point. MDL Marinas is renowned for being an innovator in the industry and is committed to enabling its berth holders to take advantage of the latest technology. As well as being the first in the country to install EV points, it was also the first to introduce WiFi back in 2004. Adrien Burnand, head of marketing aim to provide a marina environment that is not just pleasant but which adheres to or exceeds the appropriate legislation.” E: at MDL, commented: “We are always striving to find new ways to add value to our member experience and recognise the increased demand for electric vehicles and charging points as the industry evolves.
