WORLD NEWS IMBC registration opens Staten Island marina rebuilt USA: Great Kills Marina in Gateway National Park on Staten Island, New York, has been rebuilt. The marina was completely destroyed by Hurricane Sandy and the emphasis for its new Meeco Sullivan dock system is ability to withstand future hurricane force winds and storm surges. Owned by The National Parks Service and operated by Marinas of the Future, Inc., Great Kills Marina serves the New York metropolitan area and northern New Jersey. The rebuild was led by marina manager Ed Tomanek, with JT Cleary, Inc., as marine contractor and VHB Engineers in charge of marina engineering, anchoring and utilities design. The new marina system required significantly more steel anchor piles, measuring up to 20in (50.8cm) in diameter and 80ft (24.38m) in length. The timber Marinas planned for Maharashtra coast INDIA: The Maharashtra Maritime Board (MMB) and the City and Industrial Development Corporation (Cidco) plan to develop two marinas at Mandwa and Belapur on the 720kmlong Maharashtra coastline. The facilities will help ease congestion and minimise potential security threats at the over-subscribed anchorage near the Gateway to India in central Mumbai. Additional marina sites are also mooted. In August, MMB issued a Request for Proposal for the development, operation docks incorporate large utility raceways and have a combination of timber and composite decking. The system offers 350 slips from 24-60ft (7.3-18.28m) and a 10ft (3m) wide x 1500ft (457m) long outer dock for mooring larger boats. Meeco Sullivan was awarded the contract in September 2013 and started shipping the first 45 truckloads of docks in April 2014. All deadlines were met although the project experienced many delays with permitting and approvals. and maintenance of the marina at Mandwa. The concession is for 35 years on a Public Private Partnership basis and covers a total area of 135,000m² (161,458yd²). Of this, 80,000m² (95,679yd²) is waterfront and the balance is to be reclaimed for the purpose of commercial development.
