The Port of Ipswich has invested £33,000 in the installation of new state-of-the-art CCTV cameras to enhance security at the Ipswich Haven Marina.
Following its most recent expansion, the marina now has 320 berths and attracts more than 2,000 visiting yachts a year.
Linda Pipe, Ipswich Haven Marina manager, said: “Ensuring that our customers, staff and the public have a pleasant and enjoyable stay is important for us and I believe that investing in modern security equipment at the port helps achieve this by creating a safe environment.
“We want our visitors and the public to feel like they have nothing to fear, when they berth their boats at the marina or when they are taking a walk around the marina. Especially at night, when the whole area comes to life with the buzz of summer nightlife, due to its proximity to a many local restaurants and cultural spots, we aim to keep everyone safe.”
Paul Ager, divisional port manager at Associated British Ports, which owns the Port of Ipswich, added: “Since it was opened in May 2000, the Ipswich Haven Marina has become a star attraction on the east coast.
