Rolec Installs Continue WorldwideOctober 2nd 2017
Leading marina services manufacturer, supplier and installer Rolec continues to be heavily in demand for major marina projects around the world.
One of the projects most recently completed involving Rolec saw the company manufacture and supply a range of its popular Classic marina service pedestals to the new Lagos State Waterways Authority’s (LASWA’s) Head Office berthing facility, located at the Falamo Marina in Nigeria.
Rolec SOS pedestals, LED lighting and 100amp Shore Isolation Panels were also provided for the project.
LASWA, the government agency responsible for maintaining and regulating the waterways in and around the region, operate from the five-pier facility. The marina will be used by the Authority’s crew supply vessels to take personnel to and from work sites.

Rolec is also involved with a major project taking place at the Preveza Marina in Greece, on the tip of the Amvrakikos Gulf, having been asked to supply computer controlled service pedestals to cater for nearly 300 berths.
The marina, popular as a starting point to explore the shores of the Greek Ionian islands, is currently implementing a major upgrade and renovation program which includes the construction of new marina offices, restaurants and a mini-market.
Rolec had previously been awarded several contracts to supply its service pedestals to the Preveza Marina - and were again chosen as the main supplier of marina services for this latest upgrade, refurbishment and expansion programme.
Rolec will manufacture and supply its Quantum service pedestals for the project, which will feature the company’s cutting edge Berthmaster Online system. Other Rolec marina services products to be supplied include fire hydrants, SOS stations and emergency telephone pedestals - all from the company’s Quantum range.
The full order provided to Rolec encompasses:
- The design and installation of the marina’s electricity and water system
- Quantum service pedestals featuring polycarbonate photo-cell controlled LED illumination, along with ½” & ¾” water taps, and 16amp to 125amp single and three phase IP67 sockets

Managing Director of Rolec, Kieron Alsop, commented: “We are delighted to have recently been chosen to service a number of major marina projects across various continents.
“A key element to our success is the recent launch of our Quantum range, which is proving extremely popular around the world with its fusion of high quality materials and affordability.
“Quantum pedestals are both economical yet innovative, providing a powerful blend of versatility and design while also offering a unique strength and stability seldom seen on other marina service pedestals.”
Aslop continued: “Our BerthMaster Online system incorporates the latest in mobile phone technology - allowing boat owners to manage and pay for their electricity and water services via Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, etc. using their mobile phone or any other web enabled device.
“The system provides both the marina operator and boat owner with significant extra levels of control over their berth’s electricity and water services.
