Environment and Sustainability

Environmental sustainability can be explained as minimizing the impact on the environment through activities such as reduction at source, reuse, recycling, disposal, efficient use of energy, and natural resources, and reducing the use of hazardous chemicals.

In line with its environmental sensitivity and sustainability approach, Mersin Marina has adopted the zero waste principle at domestic waste sorting centers and gray water & used waste stations. Mersin Marina also provides e-charging units, preventing the damage caused by exhaust gases to the atmosphere and supporting the protection of the Mediterranean with all these services.

The importance of renewable energy, the increasing interest in system Of low carbon and the development of battery technologies in electric vehicles have increased safety in electric vehicles. With the spread of electric vehicles, electric ve spread around the world. As the demand for charging stations increases, there is a greater need for equipment that supports faster charging at higher voltages and currents. Globally, the system of public charging stations for electric vehicle charging is increasing, and efforts are being developed to provide these infrastructures in the energy sector. In this context, there are two electric charging units, 120 and 22 KWH, in our environmentally friendly Mersin Marina facility. Work continues for additional charging units.

If the boats want to empty the waste water, they can approach the marina operation and discharge their wastes directly into the seal pump in the technologically advanced automation system, in accordance with the waste control regulation. Waste water collected in the leak-proof tank is then disposed of by giving it to companies with environmental licenses. Engine oils, bilge oils and liquid fuel wastes are stored in sealed containers, separately from other wastes and each other (hazardous waste can also be kept in a designated area in the temporary storage area) and given to environmentally licensed companies in the same way.

Our Mersin Marina Facility has a "Waste Temporary Storage Area" and a "Separation Center" specially designed for its purpose. In these areas, recyclable waste is separated according to categories by the licensed company and sent to the licensed waste recycling facility. Thanks to this activity, which is one of the steps of environmental sustainability, our business helps protect natural resources and ensure economic production.
