MDL boosts tech plan

Following a successful pilot programme for smart marina technology at its Queen Anne’s Battery marina in Plymouth, UK, MDL Marinas is rolling the technology out to Hamble Point Marina (right) on the English south coast.

MDL has partnered with digital firm Falco and its marina management software provider Havenstar with a view to adopting smart technology across its network of marinas.
Connecting the marina office, staff and boaters digitally, the wireless technology works by detecting occupancy in real time with the use of motion sensors installed at each berth. This provides instant data on boat movements, providing more accurate numbers in terms of spaces available for visiting yachts at any given time.
“After trialling the project at Queen Anne’s Battery, we found the real time data on the number of available berths, without having to physically check, enabled marina staff to spend more time on the pontoons meeting and greeting customers, improving the quality of the marina experience for berth holders and customers alike,” said MDL sales and marketing director Tim Mayer.
MDL will install a total of 84 sensors around the marina at Hamble Point and 14 sensors on its events pontoon.
