product highlights 2017 Seabin – a 2017 DAME design award winner The first commercial version of the V5 Seabin – an innovative marina-based collector of floating rubbish – was displayed by Poralu Marine in the Marina & Yard Pavilion at Metstrade in November 2017. The product secured a much coveted DAME design award in the Marina Equipment category. Poralu Marine has a worldwide agreement to manufacture, sell and distribute the product. Seabin, not surprisingly, is a bin that sits in the sea. It is fixed to a floating pontoon, submerged, and connected to a low power electric pump which creates a continuous current to attract floating waste to the collector. The waste is recovered in a bag, which is emptied and replaced by maintenance personnel as required. Each bag has a maximum sensible lifting load of 20kg (44lb). As can be seen in any Seabin video, the product is a magnet for all kinds of floating debris. What is less obvious is that, in the midst of the daily rubbish, Seabin captures micro plastics; tiny 2mm fragments of pollutants that are likely to escape most other systems. Designed for sheltered waters in marinas, clubs and ports, the product should be strategically positioned in specific debris problem areas where wind and currents will push the flow of rubbish towards the bin. It should be checked twice a day. A percentage of oil can also be captured with simple oil absorption technology if the catch bag is customised for Lift for inland market this purpose. As the technology develops, the amount of oil each Seabin can capture will increase. The Tornado, the first freestanding hydraulic boat lift from Golden Boat Lifts, marks the company’s entry into the inland market. The Tornado has standard capacities up to 18,000lbs (8,165kg) – larger upon request – and is completely adjustable to accommodate deep-V and stepped hulls, deck boats, pontoon boats and PWC. It features Golden’s new Multi Bunk system - a patentpending design that provides cushioned support irrespective of the vessel’s hull configuration and protects paint and gelcoat – and Air Bellows, a sleeve-like enclosure that protects the lift’s underwater elements. Boat launch app Marina managers and customers can now manage and control a range of marina tasks using SpeedyDock, a boat launch scheduling app with bundled asset tracking and dock management capabilities. Boat launches can be scheduled and updates and requests sent straight to the field; drystack customers can request racking; a drystack can be modelled using flexible grids to easily assign boats to racks; and maps of slip layouts can quickly be built using satellite and aerial dock imagery. Smart pedestals for smart marinas Plus Marine boosted its references for dockside pedestal contracts with prestigious names, including Glossy Bay Marina in St Vincent and the Grenadines, Marina di Valletta in Malta and Capo d’Orlando Marina in Sicily. Glossy Bay, a new megayacht facility, purchased XXL pedestals for its 125 berths and the Maltese and Sicilian marinas invested in logo-enhanced stainless steel electricity and water pedestals, fire-fighting pedestals, remote control and new Smart Cloud software. Plus also designed custom pedestals with Smart Cloud remote metering for the upmarket Marasi Bay project in Dubai. - Suppliers & Services 2018/2019 5
