Premier buys Noss Marina UK: Premier Marinas has bought Noss Marina near Dartmouth, Devon from Administrators, Duff & Phelps. The marina was purchased for an undisclosed sum following a period in administration. Set in 37 acres on the eastern bank of the River Dart in Kingswear, the marina site has 180 serviced pontoon berths, 47 river moorings and a limited Major revamp proposed by RGYC AUSTRALIA: A new AU million plan to rejuvenate The Royal Geelong Yacht Club (RGYC) marina and waterfront in Geelong, Victoria, includes a circular floating marina system that would boost the current berthing arrangement for the Club from 250 to 370 berths. The project would be funded in part by the Club using cash reserves and the proceeds from the sale of the 120 new berths but also requires substantial contributions from the City of Greater Geelong and State Government. The marina and a proposed new yacht club would be open to the public. The plan also provides for a 288m (945ft) long wave attenuator, a maritime education hub, media centre for waterfront events, shops and Image: JAM Architects upgraded berth holder facilities. The RGYC plan is proposed to help secure the future of the Club and many see it as an alternative to the mooted but as yet unfunded Yarra St Pier project as a means of boosting berths in the city. WORLD NEWS boatyard operation. Premier plans to work alongside local stakeholders to design and deliver a mixed use, employment-led regeneration of the site, most of which is currently in a derelict and unusable state. The regeneration is expected to bring over £100 million of investment into the area, creating a new identity for Noss as part of the Dartmouth and Kingswear community. Enhancements to the infrastructure are likely to include a new and larger marina; new berth holder facilities; a new boatyard with increased lifting capacity and workshops for complementary marine activities; and a new home for South Devon College. The investment will be supported by sensitive residential development. Premier Marinas owns and operates eight prestigious marinas on the South Coast and has a good track record for regenerating tired sites whilst preserving their marine character and the surrounding natural environment. Year-end boost ITALY: Milan-based marina engineering specialist Ingemar Group has reported a good financial year end for 2015 citing a positive annual turnover, a strong international presence and a rewarding diversification of products. Completion of the floating pontoon extension for Marina d’Arechi in Salerno and ongoing work on floating landing stages for Venetian water taxis have been highlight projects in Italy. The portfolio of new orders for 2016 to a value of more than €10 million, a significant percentage of which is from overseas commissions, has already overtaken the previous fiscal year’s results and will allow the Group to maintain its strategic investments in R&D and continue development of its production facilities at its Casale sul Sile factory. The company is currently supplying and installing floating structures in Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. - May/June 2016 13
