Pedestals for prestigious projects Located at the base of the world renowned Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Harbour is the region’s first purposebuilt superyacht destination and is all set to be a global business and tourism hub. The development is divided into three themed marinas – Bay Marina, Palm View Marina and Harbour Marina. Each basin is designed for a specific style of service and offering. Plus Marine was chosen to provide service pedestals ranging from 32amp to 1,600amp for the project. The selected pedestals are made from 316L stainless steel with an IP65 ingress rating and incorporate the company’s proven Smart Cloud remote metering system for full system integration. Farrokh Golchin, managing director of StratConn, Plus Marine’s representative in the UAE, commented: “It was a great pleasure to be part of this project and to collaborate with a team of professionals assembled by North25 and Shamaal in order to deliver a world class marina project.” “The UAE and the GCC are very important markets for us and we are focusing on this region. After high profile projects such as Jumeirah Beach Hotel Marina, Ayla Marina (Jordan) and Kheiran Marina (Kuwait), we are looking forward to further introducing Plus Marine quality and refinement to the marina industry in this region,” he added. Plus pedestals have been installed over the last 25 years in over 5,000 projects in four continents. Some of the most prestigious references include: Port Hercules (Monaco), Port de Cannes (France), Porto Montenegro (Montenegro), Port Cervo, Portofino and Porto Mirabello (Italy), Grand Harbour Marina (Malta), Atakoy Mega Yacht Marina (Turkey) and Glossy Bay Marina (St Vincent). Leisure harbour boost in fishing port The municipality of Póvoa de Varzim, a fishing port located 34km (21mi) north of Oporto in Portugal, has undertaken a major investment to expand the leisure harbour built some 20 years ago in the southern part of the port. The new marina is located on the northern side of the basin and will have a capacity of 200 berths ranging from 6 to 20m (20 to 66ft). Lindley was selected for the design, manufacture and installation of this new facility with the supply of floating pontoons, fingers and access bridges built with extruded marine grade aluminium alloy, rotomoulded polyethylene floats and composite decking. Concrete was specified for the hammerhead pontoons to enhance protection to berthing areas. Lindley also provided electricity and water modules, as well as emergency and safety equipment, access control gates and all the required accessories for a modern marina. The contract was completed with the supply and installation of the mooring piles and wall guides in addition to aids to navigation inside the PRODUCTS, SERVICES & PEOPLE basin. The new infrastructure will be operated by the local Clube Naval Povoense. – May/June 2021 57
