Pop Up Power Supplies® supply a range of retractable service units that provide a safe and reliable power supply for all kinds of marinas and moorings, whether in a large marina complex or moorings across many canals.
The retractable nature of the power units mean whenever they are needed to provide electricity for boats and club house facilities within marinas, they are raised (pop up power units) or the lids opened with a simple key (in ground units).

UK boating industry booming
The popularity of marinas and moorings, particularly within the UK, is increasing at a rapid rate. This is down to the UK’s boat and yacht industry having a surge in sales.
The rise in popularity of the ‘staycation’ is another factor of marinas’ increasing success. UK residents are favouring to stay in the UK for their holidays, and are increasingly holidaying on barges, yachts, canal cruises and other watersports trips.
This increasing demand has meant marinas and moorings are investing in their facilities. Many are upgrading their club houses and other on-site facilities e.g. showers and toilets, to offer visitors a better experience.
Marinas and mooring facilities are now utilising their outdoor spaces with greater effect. Stalls and kiosks provide visitors with food and entertainment in an increasing number of outdoor events and fairs. However powering these stalls has been quite difficult, as traditional power options e.g. generators, are noisy, smelly and are a hazard for nearby visitors.
Providing safe outdoor power solutions for marinas and moorings
Pop Up Power Supplies® offer a range of pop up power units which provide a safe, secure outdoor power supply for marinas and moorings.
Their power units can be positioned closer to the berths and jetties where they provide a power supply for the nearby boats.
Two of their retractable service units are popular among marinas, the pop up power units and the in ground power units. The pop up power units, also known as retractable telescopic feeder pillars, provide a secure power source for marinas and can be raised and lowered easily with a detachable handle.
The power units are easy to install and only require light excavation.
Boat owners and marina staff simply raise the pop up power unit where they have access to a range of power sockets. These power units range from 16A to 12 5A power supply in both single and three phase, all with RCBO protection.
When the boat owner departs the berth, the power units are simply lowered back into the ground until the next visitor, where they blend seamlessly with the local environment.
Pop Up Power Supplies also provide a range of in ground units (also known as flip lid units). One of the main advantage of these power units is that they can be operated with the lid locked down. This prevents any public access and reduces trip hazards on walkways, jetties and other areas around the marina facilities, which is a crucial factor being next to open water. The power sockets are safely located within the high-grade mild steel structure, which is hot dip galvanised to BS EN: ISO1461.
