WORLD NEWS Safe mooring on Scottish island UK: Leisure and commercial vessels can at last dock safely in the heart of the historic harbour at Tobermory, the capital of Mull in the Scottish Inner Hebrides, thanks to a pontoon system installed by Inland & Coastal Marina Systems (ICMS). ICMS, the successful tenderer for ‘Phase 6’ – a project devised by the Tobermory Harbour Authority to create all-weather berthing – was pressed into action to supply a first phase late in 2018 when funds, that had to be spent before April 2019, became available. Four new wave-breaking pontoons were manufactured and installed. “Inland and Coastal pulled out all the stops to deliver a small part of our full Phase 6 project, on time and on budget,” said Tobermory Harbour chairman Brian Swinbanks, who described what he calls ‘Phase 6.1’ as a superb harbour asset. “Most of the town watched the assembled sections being towed from Ireland to Tobermory live on AIS. It was very exciting for lovers of marinas, pontoons and harbours!” he added. Waikawa expansion wins resource consent NEW ZEALAND: Resource consent for the extension to Port Marlborough’s Waikawa Marina was granted in June. The million project will add 252 berths of 10 to 25m (33 to 82ft) to bring the total number to nearly 870. The growing waiting lists for both Picton and Waikawa marinas have spurred on the decision, which follows ten years of careful planning and considerable consultation with community partners and stakeholders. “The North-West Extension will not only fulfil recreational demand in our marinas but also has a wider economic benefit for the Marlborough region, pre- and post-construction. The economic impact of the marina expansion is estimated to bring an annual additional expenditure of .4 million in the Marlborough region,” commented Port Marlborough CEO Rhys Welbourn. Sustainability has been a key consideration in the design of the project. The marina extension site is Management contracts begin UAE: D-Marin LLC, the joint venture established by Meraas – the Dubai-based holding company – Dubai Holding and D-Marin in 2019, has begun managing operations at Al Seef, Marasi and Jaddaf Waterfront marinas (above). In addition to this, it will deliver technical consultancy to Meraas projects in Port de La Mer, the Mediterranean-inspired waterfront destination, and Dubai Harbour, the only yachting community hub in the Middle East. The same services will also be offered to Marsa Al Arab Marinas, also in Dubai. in deeper water than existing berths at Waikawa, requiring pile and panel breakwater construction technology. The breakwater panels provide space above the seabed for continual water exchange within the marina basin, improving underwater ecology and including a Kaimoana (Maori seafood) management plan, and effects on landscape, visual amenity and natural character. Ongoing operation of the marina will incorporate low energy LED lighting, use of recycled water for flushing toilets, a rubbish recycling compound and charging facilities for electric cars and boats. The finished marina will ensure ongoing public access to the northern shoreline and there will be a walkway along the northern breakwater. The first few new berths are expected to be available in early 2021, ahead of the America’s Cup. - July/August 2019 7
