New pedestals launched at Dubai show UK-based Rolec Services confirmed the launch of a new aluminium pedestal range at the 2015 Dubai International Boat Show. According to Rolec operations director, Holly Brown, the new series was well received by show visitors. “This new addition to our range excites our customers who have a preference for aluminium products and again reinforces us in this region and around the world as being the most diverse, evolving and established marina services manufacturer,” she said. Sporting sleek styling, the pedestals have LED lighting, spring closing and Rolec displayed its brand new aluminium pedestal range at the Dubai Boat Show in early March. lockable service doors and side panels that can be individually customised. They can be fitted with electrical sockets ranging from 16A single-phase to 125A threephase as well as water taps, TV, telephone and data outlets. Rolec has recently further reinforced its presence in the Middle East market with a prestigious pedestal order for the new Al Zorah Marina project in Ajman, UAE and a contract to design and produce a bespoke payment management system for Jounieh Yacht Harbour in Lebanon. Al Zorah will be equipped with 22 white Seawave pedestals to service over 70 berths. Each has been designed to reflect the marina’s upmarket image and is manufactured in a hardwearing GRP material with a high quality marine grade gel coat finish. Each also features ornate brushed aluminium composite ‘Dibond’ service panels and photocellcontrolled LED illumination. With IP67 watertight sockets, they range from 16A single phase through to 63A threephase. All have water taps and digital water and electricity metering. The client also ordered a range of Rolec’s red SOS Seawave pedestals with first aid kits, lifebuoys and LED lighting. The contract for Jounieh Yacht Harbour brought new challenges according to Rolec international sales manager, Kate Broom. “This was a very special project for us as it was the first time we had been asked to produce a system like this for a client,” she said. The challenge was to devise a system suitable for different power levels and involved the creation of bespoke new pedestals to give the marina operator a high degree of flexibility when dealing with customer payments for water and electricity. Each resulting pedestal offers a unique choice of pre-pay and post-pay options using user smartcard interaction and office-based computer control. The pedestals each have their own RFID reader and data screen for customer interaction and balance/ credit checking but are also hard wired with an Ethernet component cable to the harbour office where payments can be managed and credit provided as required. Rolec supplied 75 customised powder coated aluminium pedestals. The 6 x 2-way, 5 x 3-way and 64 x 4-way combinations cover 283 berths. Each pedestal also features LED lighting, RJ45 data and TV sockets, varied power outputs and 1/2 inch potable and grey water taps. The harbour, which is owned by the Automobile and Touring Club of Lebanon, accommodates long term and visiting yachts.
