CLEAN WASTEWATER DISPOSAL PierPump – Trouble-free disposal of waste and bilge water from boats and yachts. When installing a wastewater management system harbor operators have to make several decisions depending on the location, number of berths and size to find the optimal system. The Vogelsang PierPump is a customer-oriented high-performance solution, which is easy to operate and allows bilge water or black water to be pumped directly into the sewage system. The integrated rotary lobe pump means that the PierPump is resistant to foreign matter, so that the vacuum extraction process does not come to stop if the wastewater contains foreign matter. Wastewater tanks are vacuum extracted in a very short time, and the voyage can continue. VOGELSANG LEADING IN TECHNOLOGY – November/December 2020 WORLD NEWS Online IBEX voted a success USA: IBEX Online: A Virtual Experience, launched as a first-time event by IBEX LLC and held from 29th September – 2nd October 2020, received positive feedback from exhibitors and visitors alike.

Thank you to all of our partners, exhibitors and visitors for joining us. Of course, we can’t fully recreate the unexpected connections, fortuitous business opportunities and spontaneous inspirations that can only happen when walking down the aisles of IBEX, which is why we look forward to seeing everyone in person at IBEX 2021.” The 2021 IBEX show is scheduled to be held 28th-30th September in Tampa, Florida, USA.

Communities USA: Safe Harbor Marinas of Dallas, Texas has entered into a definitive merger agreement with Sun Communities, Inc of Southfield, Michigan and one of its subsidiaries. The transaction was for cash and SUI equity valued at US.11 billion. “We are excited to partner with Sun Communities, a premier real estate investment trust that owns and operates 426 properties across North America,” said Safe Harbor Marinas CEO Baxter Underwood. “We have spent a number of years getting to know Sun and are impressed with their leadership team and track record of consistently growing value for all their stakeholders. Safe Harbor will operate independently from Sun’s other businesses, but we will benefit from their tremendous strength. We are committed to continuing the growth of our marina portfolio by harnessing Sun’s advantageous cost and form of capital,” he continued. Gary A Shiffman, CEO of Sun Communities added: “We look forward to welcoming Safe Harbor to the Sun family. We have studied the marina industry and specifically Safe Harbor for a number of years and have gotten to know the team very well. Expanding Sun’s platform to include marinas is a major strategic decision and we could not have chosen a better partner to execute this important growth initiative.” The transaction is expected to close during the fourth quarter of this year and is subject to customary closing conditions. 7 INNOVATIVE.
