BWML Award Rolec 1,000 Berth Refurbishment ContractJanuary 30th 2018
British Waterways Marinas Ltd (BWML) recently announced at the 2018 London Boat Show that it had appointed Rolec to design, supply and install approximately 500 new Quantum service pedestals across 1,000 berths at its Sawley and Hull marinas.
In addition to the 500 Quantum pedestals, Rolec will also be installing its future proof, industry leading BerthMaster Online electricity management system, enabling BWML’s boat owners to pay for, monitor and manage their own electricity services via mobile phone or any other web enabled device.
Jeff Whyatt, MD of BWML, commented: “Investment in service pedestal infrastructure is essential for any marina. As such, we took our time to undertake a full due diligence process, exploring the market and benchmarking carefully what was available.
“After careful consideration it was clear that Rolec’s BerthMaster Online system, in conjunction with their Quantum pedestal, was by far and away the best solution.”
Jeff continued: “One of the key attractions of Rolec’s BerthMaster Online system is its online payment portal, which we believe is essential for customer convenience.
“As well as managing marina berths, the flexibility of the BerthMaster Online system enables us to monitor and manage further electricity supplies across our sites - including those of onsite business tenants and partners.”
Sawley and Hull will be the first two of BWML’s marinas to be refurbished by Rolec in early 2018, with further marinas across the country to follow.
Kieron Alsop, MD of Rolec commented: “We are delighted to have been chosen by BWML to undertake their nationwide marina services refurbishment program, starting with the 1,000 berths across the Sawley and Hull marinas.
“The combination of the Quantum pedestal and the BerthMaster Online management system is now firmly established as the world’s leading marina services utility solution.
“With tens of thousands of berths in over 25 countries already using the Quantum/BerthMaster combination, we are delighted that BWML, one of the UK’s largest marina operators, has chosen our modern, futureproof solution.”
Kieron continued: “The flexibility of BerthMaster Online is one of the key features of the entire system.
“BWML’s initial requirements of the BerthMaster Online system is to manage their electrical infrastructures across their marina network, with a view to utilising further BerthMaster Online features in the future.
“These additional features include facilities to enable marinas to control and manage services such as water supplies, sanitation pump out, marina lighting efficiency and even electric vehicle charging points - which can generate a new revenue stream for the marina.“
