The objectives set out in environmental policy require investments. Investment helps equip the marinas, promoting water and energy savings.
- Limit the consumption of drinking water: Installation of XX pressure reducers, implementation of remote meter reading to identify possible leaks or excessive consumption, cleaning pontoons with seawater...
> Economy of 1,400 m3 of water a year, or 2.5 times the capacity of the municipal swimming pool in Lorient.
- Monitor the quality of discharged water: careening zones in Lorient and Port-Louis have been equipped with a treatment plant.
> The aim of treating careening water is to remove impurities in order to preserve the quality of the natural environment in which they are rejected.
- Control energy consumption: replacement of halogen bulbs with LED’s used for lighting the pontoons.
> In 2013, fifteen 300W halogen projectors were replaced with 40W LED spotlights (equivalent to 200W) in Kernével marina. This represents a saving of 12,800kwh, the average power consumption of three two-people 75m² flats.
- Promote waste sorting and reducing the volumes collected: improve sorting points in dry dock areas and Kernével marina.
> In 2013, 60% of the collected waste was recycled into energy and 40% was recycled for other purposes (plastic packaging, used oils, WEEE, batteries).
- Preserve and promote biodiversity in the marina
- Prevent environmental risks: staff training and acquisition of anti-pollution equipment (floating barrage, hydrocarbon absorbent sheets, pumps...)
- Enhance the areas surrounding the marina
- Accompany the environmental management of events
- Firmly establish an environmental culture in the behaviour and working methods of actors in the nautical sector
