As with most marinas, space has become the biggest challenge. Dock space has become harder to accommodate and dry boat storage – when available – is cost prohibitive, time consuming and, at times, dangerous for the boats and the people around them. Technomarine’s DockServices® automated dry storage solution addresses all of these challenges, creating a safer, more efficient and profitable approach to marina management and port container logistics – reducing overall costs of operations and manpower compared to conventional dry storage.
With a capacity of up to 70′(22m) up to 30 metric tons, the DockServices solution accommodates more boats with less of a footprint than conventional dry storage. Boats are launched and retrieved in less than 5 minutes using only one crane – which never comes in contact with the hull – increasing boat life, premature wear and other risks of accident. Boats are even rinsed with high-pressure fresh water upon removal.
Owners will rest assured their boats are effectively protected by an overhead sprinkler system with a reservoir outside of the building, and a hydrocarbon fire emulsion storage cistern. Security is also provided and monitored 24 hours/7 days a week by closed circuit television along with intrusion alarm systems. The building is designed and engineered to withstand category 4 hurricanes.
This same technology is now also available for container storage at high-volume ports around the world. The automation makes loading, unloading and sorting of containers more efficient – increasing volume and profits.
Technomarine offers the DockServices solution as a turnkey design. Construction, commissioning, testing, staff training and maintenance protocols have already been developed to make the process seamless. Take the next step toward automation and allow customers to simply request a launch or removal upon arrival or in advance by phone, e-mail or mobile app reservation.
