Conwy Marina Notice to Mariners – Nov 2023 / 2

Following the unfortunate incident with storm Debi that led to the damage of our temporary sill gate control panel housing, I am pleased to inform you that the new control panel housing is now complete, and we are ready to resume sill gate operations for daytime only.

We understand the inconvenience caused during the suspension of sill gate operations, and we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this period.

In the interest of everyone’s safety, we took the necessary precautions to suspend operations until we could guarantee the satisfactory reinstallation of the new housing and conduct thorough tests on the electrical equipment. Your safety and the integrity of our marina infrastructure are of utmost importance to us.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding throughout this process. Your patience is appreciated as we worked to ensure the safety and functionality of our sill gate system. Further updates on any developments will be provided promptly.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. Once again, thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to smooth sill gate operations in the coming days.
