Haslar Marina install Rolec’s brand new electricity service pedestal as the first phase of major improvements to this popular marina at the heart of Portsmouth Harbour, in time for the new season.
Spring is in the air as Dean & Reddyhoff Marinas announce their ambitious plans to improve Haslar Marina. A total of over £1.5m investment has been earmarked for this conveniently located, family friendly marina in Portsmouth Harbour. Dean & Reddyhoff’s first and largest marina has a loyal following so its 600 berth holders will benefit from the plans drawn up by the company to span the next three years.
Priorities include repairing the wavescreen, dredging, a new electrical installation using Rolec’s Quantum pedestals and major improvements to the washroom facilities; the last two being worked upon right now.
The first phase of the electrical installation sees the stylish new Rolec Quantum pedestal being fitted to the pontoons from April. Haslar will be the first marina in the UK to showcase the slim anodised aluminium bollards. Ben Lippiett, Marina Manager, states ‘We are thrilled to be rolling out the Quantum pedestals. They are well built, look superb and, together with the BerthMaster Online software, create a fantastic online solution for our customers to manage their own electricity accounts. We hope customers will use less electricity as a consequence (with obvious environmental benefits) as they will get immediate feedback on usage so can quickly identify power hungry devices on board.’
The team have worked closely with Rolec to achieve the best solution available for their berth holders and have selected ‘BerthMaster Online’ that allows owners to turn their power on or off from any web enabled device.
They can also pre-pay securely online having viewed and checked their own consumption since their last payment. Email updates will advise of a multitude of items, from low credit alerts through to a notification if they have been unplugged. This new system makes life much easier and more efficient for the berth holder. A clever, intuitive piece of modern engineering, much appreciated by Brian and Dawne Dunton, berth holders for over 19 years and both major players at Haslar Yacht Club.
’Being able to keep an eye on usage from the office, or abroad is an excellent new development. We don’t live that far away, but to have any cuts in supply flagged up instantly has obvious advantages. We love the marina and our berth here, but it will be even better when the washrooms are complete and the Rolec system installed.’ – Brian Dunton, Tallulah Princess 50
