Windermere Quays Returns To Rolec To Undertake Major New Marina Project For Over 200 BerthsAugust 22nd 2017
The Windermere Quays marina in Bowness–on–Windermere, Cumbria, again chose to install Rolec products for its latest £4.7million large scale refurbishment and expansion project.
Rolec was delighted to receive the order to manufacture, supply and install its anodised aluminium Quantum marina service pedestal range and other accessories for the project - which now provide services to over 200 berths at the Quays.
Windermere Quays’ order included the manufacture and installation by Rolec of over 100 silver Quantum marina service pedestals. These innovative, high quality units featured electricity metering, water taps and LED lighting. Anti-frost protection was also included via Rolec’s heat trace tape system.
In addition to the modern pedestals Windermere Quays also installed over 50 energy efficient LED deck combi lights, in blue and white, shore electrical system isolation panels and a number of Distribution Units.
A range of Rolec emergency service equipment was installed too - in the form of Quantum SOS pedestals.
All of the under deck pipework at the Quays was lagged by Rolec to provide extra frost protection. Marina consultants for the project were Marina Projects.
Martin Georgeson, Rolec’s Sales Director, commented: “We are delighted that Windermere Quays, based in such a beautiful part of the UK, returned to us for its latest major project. This shows the faith they have in our products, as nearly 15 years ago we installed our hugely popular Classic pedestals there too.
“For this latest project, Rolec managed the installation so that the marina remained operational while sections were stripped out and completed one at a time. The work was carried out with Walcon Marine and we worked closely with them to ensure a wide variety of factors were taken into account and managed effectively.
“Windermere Quays chose to install marina service pedestals from our Quantum range - a great choice as these modern pedestals fuse high quality materials with the affordability of entry-level priced units.
“Our Quantum range is both economical yet innovative, providing a powerful blend of versatility and design, and also offering a unique strength and stability seldom seen on other marina service pedestals.”
Managing Director of Windermere Aquatic Limited, Grahame Armer, commented: “We have been very happy with the service we have received from Rolec over the years, and this time too the installation went really well - and the products are excellent.
“Rolec’s Quantum is a brilliant marina service pedestal, we would certainly install these again in the future.
“The LED lighting from Rolec looks stunning at night too – all of the comments from berth holders have been totally positive.”
