MDL continues multi-million pound roll-out

Supporting its commitment to sustainability and further investing in its green infrastructure, MDL Marinas has installed a new system of solar panels at its Cobb’s Quay Marina in Poole, Dorset.

Part of a multi-million pound roll-out across its UK marina network, the new 34kW photovoltaic system at the 1,130 berth marina in picturesque Poole Harbour will produce around 31,500kWh of electricity each year, saving over 9,500kg of carbon and the equivalent of planting 425 trees.
Installed by specialist solar energy contractor Your Eco on the roof of the main facilities building, the 82 new solar panels join 120 panels installed in 2011 and 270 installed in 2021, bringing the total number of solar panels across MDL’s network to 1,134.
The electricity generated by the new solar modules will be used to power MDL’s activities and services. Giving live, measurable data, MDL’s website will display the total power now generated at Cobb’s Quay, and its other marinas, along with the total C02 emission saved.
“Our aim is to power our marinas through on-site generated renewable energy,” said MDL’s estates director Simon Welch. “We’ll continue with the multi-million roll out of solar panel installations across our other marinas, as we work through our planned green investment programme.”
“By investing in solar at its marinas, MDL has afforded long-term energy security from a renewable source, future-proofing the company’s energy supply,” added Nick Spicer of Your Eco.
