CLEAN WASTEWATER DISPOSAL PierPump – Trouble-free disposal of waste and bilge water from boats and yachts. When installing a wastewater management system harbor operators have to make several decisions depending on the location, number of berths and size to find the optimal system. The Vogelsang PierPump is a customer-oriented high-performance solution, which is easy to operate and allows bilge water or black water to be pumped directly into the sewage system. The integrated rotary lobe pump means that the PierPump is resistant to foreign matter, so that the vacuum extraction process does not come to stop if the wastewater contains foreign matter. Wastewater tanks are vacuum extracted in a very short time, and the voyage can continue. VOGELSANG LEADING IN TECHNOLOGY

HALF MOON BAY MARINA EXTENSION AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND Revised costing for St George’s WORLD NEWS BERMUDA: The St George’s Marina, a new development centred around a repaired dock on the south side of Ordnance Island, is subject to increased costs and slight delays. Speaking in the House of Assembly on 20 th May, David Burch, Minister of Public Works confirmed that structural engineers Brunel had been forced to raise cost estimates for the project from US.7 million to US.12 million. This reflects current inflationary pressures and significantly increased material and shipping costs. The new marina will feature an area for visiting yachts; the newly repaired Ordnance Island facility; 650 linear feet (198m) of moorage for small boats; ten stern-to berths for superyachts; a marina reception, lounge and café; a duty free fuel dock; and pump-out services. The marina is the subject of a 21- year leasing arrangement between the Corporation of St George and the developer, and gross proceeds of the marina revenue will be shared. Completion is anticipated in December. Marina mooted in the east THAILAND: A new luxury marina in Bang Saray near Pattaya in eastern Thailand is being considered by the Transport Ministry. According to Chayathan Promsorn, permanent secretary for transport, a three-phase feasibility study will be conducted to determine possible locations, the economic benefits and environmental impact. Planning for Enviro Officer course BELGIUM: European Boating Industry (EBI), together with the German Ocean Foundation, Sea Teach, the National Technical University of Athens, the German Marine Federation (BVWW) and Frederick University, is developing the EnviroNaut project to create the first ever environmental qualification for the nautical tourism sector. The curricula will respond to targets set by the European Green Deal and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It aims to sustainably manage recreational boating and nautical tourism to become a means of protecting marina and coastal ecosystems. Over the next two years, EnviroNaut partners will develop a course for an Environmental Officer qualification. Marine Department figures claim that Thailand has 13 tourist ports that can be properly classified as marinas. Four of these are in the eastern region. More are needed to help boost tourism. It will be available online, free and accessible to marinas, water sports companies, skipper services, nautical schools, other training institutions and charter companies. EBI secretary-general, Philip Easthill, comments: “The EnviroNaut project will be a game-changer for the industry. The Environmental Officer qualification will take sustainability to a whole new level for nautical tourism companies.” 18 MAJOR ACTIVE PROJECTS IN NEW ZEALAND IN 2021 A SAMPLE OF THE PROJECTS • WESTPORT & GREYMOUTH • HALF MOON BAY MARINA • WAIKAWA MARINA • WHITIANGA FUEL DOCK • PAHI PONTOON & GANGWAY • MOSELLE DRYSTACK • GULF HARBOUR • HIGHBROOK • DARGAVILLE WHARF SCAN THE QR CODE TO CLAIM YOUR FREE 2022 CALENDAR.
