DOCKSIDE PRODUCTS Protection at the dockside HydroHoist Boat Lifts has introduced a new boat and dock protection package that includes bow guide, corner bumpers, HydroFender and UltraFender. Each product is specifically designed to offer security when entering and leaving the dock and is manufactured from durable polyethylene, the same material used to make HydroHoist boat lift tanks. It is strong yet flexible and will hold up in salt and freshwater conditions. Hollow units are designed to absorb energy and drastically reduce heavy vessel damage. The bow guide aligns the boat or personal watercraft in the slip while offering protection to the keel. The corner bumpers offer peace of mind when pulling into the slip, protecting the vessel from contact with the dock. They Phased refurbishment and expansion The Vrancken brothers, owners of two marinas on the River Maas near the Belgian border in the southern part of the Netherlands, have completed renovations and expansion. Dock accessory products from HydroHoist include the bow guide (top), and corner bumpers and UltraFenders made of a durable, flexible polyethylene material that is suitable for use in both salt and freshwater. have multiple attachment points and fit on docks with both internal and external roof posts. The HydroFender – a high quality dock edge bumper designed to replace a traditional rub rail provides yet further protection – and the UltraFender is ideal for fuel docks and premium slips. Contact HydroHoist in the USA on email: The project, covering 600 berths, is being undertaken in stages. “We have just completed two new jetties and upgraded two others,” Rob Vrancken confirms. From 2016 onwards, the owners will work on four further new jetties offering 350 berths. These will be completed in four stages over a four year period. The remaining jetties will then also receive an upgrade. As the power network as well as the original dock facilities date back to the 1970s, upgrades are essential. Vrancken selected Seijsener’s Harbour In product (right). “We chose Harbour In because it is minimalistic and sleek,” he says. “Furthermore, this in-deck system creates fewer obstacles on the jetties.” And, as a sleek new system needs to be efficiently managed, the owners have also purchased Seijsener’s Kick 3000 power distribution cabinets. “Measuring and managing power consumption via Kick 3000 is a godsend for us when we need to keep over 600 connections in place. Not only can we turn all connections on and off from the harbour office but we can also take the meter readings. We can set the desired amperage at each berth.” The Vrancken brothers went to much effort when planning the marina upgrades and included customer feedback in their final decisions. “Before starting the work, we set up a trial jetty. You can talk a lot about what you want to do in terms of innovation but with a trial jetty guests could immediately see and feel what the docks would be like in the future.” Seijsener is proving to be a valuable partner. “It is an absolute joy working with them on this huge project,” Vrancken notes. “The thought process always takes longer than you expect and they have participated fully and enthusiastically. Seijsener works to reach our perceived goal and understands how we want to achieve it.” Contact Seijsener in the Netherlands on email: - March/April 2016 45
