French project boosts connectivity PRODUCTS, SERVICES & PEOPLE Having come to the end of a period of development, renovation and the introduction of new products, port of Sète-Sud in France is now looking at its connectivity. A strategic Psamides award-winning project for 2021-2025 has been devised to support the sustainable growth and economic development of marinas by introducing innovative solutions, particularly in management of tourist flow, sustainable management of resources and equipment and adaptation of services to meet new customer requirements. Various solutions have been selected to help marinas meet the challenges of digital and ecological transition. They will be tested in four partner ports: the port authorities of Sète-Sud; the Balearic Islands (Spain); the Generalitat of Catalonia (Spain); and Heraklion (Greece). Port de Sète has chosen to integrate the Falco digital solution, which uses Vacuum system with smart monitoring The entire complex at Sandy Lane Yacht Club in Canouan in the Grenadines has been equipped with a Flovac designed and installed vacuum sewerage system. The project, which took around two years to complete, covers the 120- berth marina (with its 24 superyacht berths), a commercial area, hotels and a residential area of luxury villas. A 2.5km (1.5mi) long sewage network, a vacuum station and a reclaimed water treatment plant were installed. The station and plant were supplied in plug and play containers due to the difficulties of undertaking the project on a small island. Sandy Lane is now the first marina in the Caribbean to have a vacuum sanitation system and has now invested in Flovatronic, Flovac’s monitoring system, to manage and supervise the installation. Flovatronic, designed and developed Internet of Things (IoT) technology developed by researchers at INRIA, a public research institute in Paris. Through the installation of smart, connected sensors, combined with a user app, the solution allows the port to offer new services to recreational boaters and improve environmental management and safety on the water. The deployment of the network and sensors was finalised in November 2020. By equipping its entire main basin (484 moorings) with this technology, Port de Sète claims to be the first connected port in Europe. “Given the strategic remit of our project, we naturally chose to work with the Falco solution, a dynamic start-up based on innovative, reliable technology,” says director Fabien by Flovac, is smart software that monitors all aspects of vacuum sewerage systems. Its main feature is to identify any issues in the network, such as infiltration, blockage or failure. The technology allows operators to control any installation from either the vacuum station, the control centre or the headquarters, on any device with connection to the internet anywhere on the planet. The control can easily be adapted to both new and existing systems. Monitoring takes place in three main sections: • Vacuum Pump Station: monitoring mechanical and electrical equipment and tracking energy consumption • Vacuum Network: detecting any Luais. “This connected tool will be the cornerstone of our port of tomorrow, which will enable us to increase our quality of service as well as develop new services that meet our customers’ expectations.” & inflow or infiltration into the system, monitoring the vacuum pressure and identifying the location of breaks or leaks in the vacuum main • Vacuum Valves: monitoring the opening and closing of the valves, recording the open time and keeping track of the air/liquid ratio Flovac will also integrate Flovatronic to the resort’s Building Management System (BMS) in order to keep up with the status of all buildings. – January/February 2021 55
