We have installed the new BerthMaster Online electricity management system at Haslar Marina and in Portland Marina’s boatyard and on the new pontoons. The BerthMaster Online system allows you to control and view your electricity connection and consumption via your phone or computer from wherever you are.
Rather than having bills produced from meter readings, users have an online account and can decide how much to pre-pay, and whether to set automatic top-ups, all paid securely online by credit or debit card. You can view your electricity usage at any time, and can switch the supply on and off remotely.
If your boat is unplugged by another user, or the supply is interrupted, you will receive a message alert straight away. No other user can access the credit on your account, so even if your socket is used by another boat while you are away, you will only ever pay for the electricity you use.
BerthMaster Online works by allocating a socket to each berth, with each socket having a unique ID number.
You connect to the electricity either online or by typing in codes to the master pedestal near your boat.
Each socket will have a unique four-digit number which is shown on a plaque attached above the socket. At Haslar, the first two digits are the pontoon code, and the second two digits are the berth number.
