Sealite’s Big Buoys Mark the Way at Dighi Port, India

Sealite has supplied TRIDENT-3000, NAUTILUS-2200 and SL-B1250 marine buoys fitted with GPS lanterns to mark the channel entrance to the Dighi Port in Maharashtra, Dighi, India.

Authorised Sealite distributor, Aeromarine Equipments Supply, were commissioned by Dighi Ports Ltd to supply, erect and lay the buoys in the channel.

This project was put on paper in 2002 and it took some time to convince the Dighi Ports to change from using metal buoys to polyethylene. Persistence and the relentless effort of Aeromarine’s marketing department, who left no stone unturned in landing this job, paid off in the long run.

To further assist in the smooth execution of this project Sealite sent their Production Manager, Mr Peter Bird, to India to give instruction and help with the preassembly of the TRIDENT buoys.

Aliasgar E Patrawala from Aeromarine commented, “When the containers came into port and we were offloading them the port workers had no clue as to how we would construct a buoy out of the pieces but as the days went by the port guys were amazed to see the TRIDENTs rigged up and could not believe their eyes.”

The complete buoy order, including 13x TRIDENT-3000, 10x NAUTILUS-2200 and 5x SL-B1250 buoys fitted with GPS lanterns was executed in 75 days from the time of order, including manufacturing at Sealite, shipment, erection and commissioning in India. Aeromarine would like to thank Sealite and their rotational moulding team for making this project a success by meeting the customer’s demanding delivery dates.

We will never get tired of talking about the Sealite range of products, once again we say … These are the bloody best products in the market today! We have personally seen the amount of research and development put into the products and the efforts to make them the best and most simplified. Thanks a million!

On behalf of Karachi Port I am pleased to acknowledge your good service and provision of the new SL-75 solar marine lanterns installed by your firm in the harbour channel at Karachi Port. The new lanterns are very feasible and useful and equipped with the latest navigational technology.

[Re: Sealite SL-LED Lightsource at LaCorbiere Lighthouse], We were impressed with Sealite’s solution which provided a modern, reliable and efficient light source whilst remaining sympathetic to the lighthouse’s heritage and significance as a local landmark, but most importantly to improve upon reliability and to continue its vital role in aiding the safety of navigation in Jersey’s waters, as it has done for nearly 130 years.

[Re: Sealite Wins Duke’s Choice Award for Java Technology & the Environment – Sealite GSM monitoring & control system]. The team at Motorola were extremely impressed with Sealite’s innovative integration of the G24-Java wireless module in their GSM Monitoring & Alarm System.

As one of your new distributors (Belize and Honduras, Waller Marine Belize LTD), I would like to express my congratulations to you and your people in providing reliable, dependable and inexpensive products. Formerly we were distributors for a Canadian made product but these were found to be too expensive for the market and also offered only difficult and complicated programming. Our first order of lights from you (SL15’s) took only four days to arrive from Aussie Land, when I opened the box they were still flashing. I tested a SL60 (white) for four days (steady on) before it required a recharge…remarkable. I will be placing another order shortly. Keep up the good work.

[Re: Installation of WindTalker for kite-surfing club], The WindTalker™ is a big success here in Cyprus, thanks to your after sales support the unit is now functioning perfectly.

-Christophe Meletiou

We choose to sell Sealite … this is a long story, well we treat Sealite as our own and the relationship we have developed with Jeff and Chris and their attitude and commitment towards growing Sealite to this stage is remarkable. We feel at home when talking to them and the staff of Sealite and this in turn gives us more security and strength in selling products in India.

[Re: Sealite Solar-Powered LED Area Lighting system], We chose the Sealite system for the Jacobs Well Queuing Pontoon due to our previous experience with Sealite’s product, its durability and construction.

-Peter Taylor

I just wanted to say thank you for the light and bracket Sealite supplied to Birkenhead Marina. As the other lights (old ones) need new batteries I will be replacing them with new lights from Sealite and the same brackets that you supplied with the light we received last week … Your product is excellent and the system of setting the light is good also. Thanks again for all your trouble.
