The company built the original installation 23 years ago, and has now replaced it with new, updated equipment. The two-stage project involved first installing a new 43m (141ft) bridge and an alongside docking area for RIBs and launches, the latter constructed using Walcon’s heavy-duty Jumbo pontoons, fitted with mesh decking. This was followed by the second stage, the replacement plus extension of the floating storage and launch slipways for the RIBs. This was achieved using twenty 10m (33ft) long, low-level sloping concrete pontoons to allow for easy launching and retrieval. Situated in an exposed location and subject to intensive, often inexperienced use, the facility has been built to withstand heavy punishment over the long term. MDL launches green gyms MDL Marinas has broadened its brand offering by launching MDL Fitness, a new range of green gyms where the fitness equipment converts human kinetic energy into electricity. Between 2021 and 2022, MDL plans to open gyms at up to four of its marinas. All will feature SportArt ECO- POWR equipment, which harnesses up to 74% of the energy spent by each user while exercising and converts it to utility grade electricity. When tested, two ECO-POWR bikes used for a collective total of 47 hours produced enough electricity to power a laptop for nearly 75 hours or an LED flat screen TV for 32 hours. Using one of the treadmills for an hour twice a week for a year also creates a CO2 emission offset equivalent to 62lbs of coal burned, 138 miles driven in a car or the charge of 7,197 smart phones. “We’re delighted to be launching MDL Fitness, broadening the appeal of our locations and attracting more people to our marinas,” says Tim Mayer, MDL sales and marketing director. “By partnering with SportArt, making the new fitness centres ‘green’, and enabling people to transform their workouts into a power source, we’re also continuing our pledge towards environmental improvement.” 58 – March/April 2021
