DOCKSIDE SERVICES Europa pedestals installed at Prince Philip Yacht Haven. Maricer wins top UK contracts In addition to achieving export sales, UK-based Maricer experienced a significant rise in demand for products and services on its home market in the first half of this year. St Helier Marina in Jersey, Channel Islands, took delivery of 31 Europa service pedestals, four fully equipped Europa emergency centres, five distribution panels and 36 of the company’s new flush mounted Callisto deck units with anti-slip feature. As part of the client’s remit, eight of the pedestals feature a specially designed form of energy control as these will be used by transient customers. The system had to be simple and convenient for both the marina and customer, without the need for cards, cash or tokens. After exploring many ideas, Maricer in-house technicians devised a key system whereby units can be set to deliver energy to the boat user for either one hour, 24-hour or 48- hour timeframes. The company also secured a prestigious order for the new Prince Philip Yacht Haven, a marina redevelopment project of Royal Southern Yacht Club and its neighbour the Royal Air Force Yacht Club on the Hamble, UK south coast. The contract comprised 51 Europa pedestals connected to a Smart Energy metering system; four distribution panels; five Extraleti wall-mounted lighting units (to be fitted along the pathway to the Royal Air Force Yacht Club berths); and around two and a half miles of cabling, installed by Maricer engineers. Draper deemed the project quite possibly the most prestigious to date for Maricer given its ‘royal’ connection. He said the team had been extremely proud to take part and had pulled together efficiently to help deliver a world class facility.
