DOCKSIDE SERVICES Corpus The all-new Extreme range. Christi Marina takes shape The City of Corpus Christi, Texas, USA contracted Meeco-Sullivan dock builders, Jacob White Construction and McDonald Electric (TotalPower Solutions) to complete a major renovation project for the city marina. Oklahoma-based HyPower was selected to review and propose an electrical design for the project. HyPower recommended everything from substations and cable sizes to pedestal configurations and fire Comsen builds on its roots Australian manufacturer Comsen has released a new aluminium pedestal range called Extreme. The pillars are fully anodised to 25 microns for ultimate durability and the side is completely removable for easy maintenance. Three models are offered – standard, wide and jetty – offering configuration options to meet most berth outlet needs, e.g. light, water, backlit berth identification, data, communications, metering etc. The jetty model has matching pathway and jetty lights. If you prefer to refurbish than upgrade, Comsen has good news for owners of older model PVC pedestals. Having repurchased its original moulds in 2008 – further to various name and ownership changes – Comsen can now offer parts or complete shells for most original models. The company also looks forward to offering remote metering having worked over the last 12 months with Spanish-based Vatia to evolve the proven Hermes communications system. The wireless plug and play solution requires no configuration and installation is made after electrical connections are in place, making it ideal for retrofit. A launch is expected soon.

This plan became the basis for the bid package sent out by the City and Jacob White. “For the marina and project manager, this seamless approach makes it easier to plan and manage the entire process,” said Eric Farley, HyPower director of sales, “and this solution saves time and money, allowing a marina to package the quality and flexibility of technologyleading power pedestals with industryleading distribution gear within a design that is ready for budgeting.” Corpus Christi Marina was already familiar with HyPower and the PowerSnap technology found in its pedestals, as they were installed during previous renovations. The marina project is current under way and is expected to complete this summer season. HyPower PowerPorts, HydroLockers and AMP distribution equipment is being fitted.
