PRODUCTS & SERVICES Custom pedestals for Marasi Bay Plus Marine has been selected to supply custom-made service pedestals for the prestigious Marasi Bay project in Dubai (see Inside Track August/ September on www. To boast a unique design, the pedestals are being made from 316L stainless steel with an IP65 ingress rating, will have a range of 20 - 250A and incorporate Plus Marine’s Smart Cloud remote metering for full system integration. The project, to be built in phases, will offer approximately 800 berths. Farrokh Golchin, managing director of StratConn LLC, Plus Marine’s representative in the UAE, is delighted to be working on another prestigious project. “UAE and GCC are very important markets for us and we are focusing on this region,” he said. “After high profile projects such as Jumeirah Beach Hotel Marina, Ayla Marina (Jordan) and Kheiran Marina (Kuwait), we are looking forward to introducing Plus Marine quality and refinement to the marine industry in this region.” E: Bringing marinas into the Smart world BerthMaster Online, the marina management system launched by Rolec just over a year ago, has been well received at a global level (see Marina World July/August 2017) but commercial success is only part of the story. Connecting the marina industry to the Smart world has only just begun. “BerthMaster Online is a cloud-based multi-layered Smart platform that enables us, in association with our global strategic partners Vodafone and WorldPay, to continually evolve and develop new and exciting apps and features that can be remotely deployed to the benefit of both the berth holder and marina operator,” says Rolec operations director Holly Brown. “Some of the latest additions include ‘loss of power’ email alerts, analytic reporting of utility services, berth holder focused push marketing facilities and the ability to manage berth holder accounts across multiple marinas,” she adds. Utilising the latest in mobile phone technology, Berthmaster Online brings everyone associated with the marina – staff, customers, franchised retailers and social outlets – under one cloudbased Smart system that, as it develops, is providing more and more services and solutions. Berth holders have control of marina services and can pay for these using their phone or any other web enabled device; the marina operator can control and manage all electricity supplies, water, lighting, sanitation and security systems and derive a wealth of analytical information on all services. The push marketing feature enables the marina to send e-shots and emails directly to customers to market boats for sale, offer early settlement discounts, promote restaurant deals and special events etc. “The list of services can go on and on,” says Rolec managing director Kieron Alsop. “The fact that this is a multi-layered Smart Cloud platform means that we can continue to develop apps and features, and remotely add them to the system as and when trends and marina management directions dictate. In effect, it’s a completely liquid platform that has the potential to give the marina every resource it needs and give customers connectivity 24/7.” “I really believe this is the future of marinas,” Alsop tells Marina World. “It’s something the marina industry has needed for some time to bring it into the modern Smart world we all live in and depend upon.” E: - September/October 2017 63
