Inland and Coastal Marina Systems

Get onboard safely

At Inland and Coastal Marina Systems, we design, manufacture and install a range of access solutions to enable boats to moor securely and get their crews on and off safely. We have over 20 years’ experience and understand the physical, environmental and commercial challenges within which ports and harbours operate. 

Commitment to safety

Safety is paramount in everything we do. We believe that safe access is the starting point to a well-run operation. Antiquated methods, such vertical wall ladders, narrow access ways and poorly designed mooring connections can be a hotspot for slips, trips and falls. From the top of the access ramp to the final fender, our systems are built with the user in mind, 24/7.

As part of our design and installation services, our team of dedicated engineers boast a wide range of design and technical expertise, ensuring we offer the right advice from the start.

“Working closely with us to fully understand the brief and what needed to be achieved, Inland and Coastal has developed a bespoke solution catering to all stakeholders,” says Cormac O’Donoghue from the Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine.

Importantly, offshore energy companies are now adopting our access systems as standard. Why? Because we offer stability, high grip surfaces with higher freeboard pontoons and 24-hour operational performance. This ensures their technical, non-seafaring engineering teams feel confident and safe when boarding their assigned crew transfer vessel (CTV) to get to work. 

Safety from start to finish

As a company we operate to the highest quality and safety standards in our production processes. We are committed to environmental and sustainable best practices and have invested in partnerships that can deliver marine habitat improvements. Our Living Seawalls is an award-winning example of this commitment. 

We have recently joined the Port, Skills and Safety Association (PSSA), to better listen to and understand the needs of safety and operations professionals. This association will enable us to collaborate and innovate together on safer ways of working in and around pontoons, and as the ports industry’s leading body for safety and skills, the PSSA are perfectly placed to help ensure we meet the highest safety standards in everything we do.

“We are keen to be collaborating with Port, Skills, and Safety Association, whose vision and drive match our own dedication to safer access to boats and shared commitment to excellence,” says Jon Challis, Head of Business Development at Inland and Coastal.

“We continually strive to ensure that every individual, whether working shore side on the pontoon or part of the crew heading out to sea, can work with confidence and security.”

We offer PSSA members a free pontoon access consultation service, where we will arrange a site visit to understand the issues and provide a short options and costs report.
