Negon Admin Remote Support NARS-v1.0
The NARS-v1.0 management system provides the following information of each structure.

Automations. The following electromechanical equipment is checked:

  • Solar panels, transformers, and verification of battery capacity
  • Power generator
  • Anchorage system
  • Desalination and water supply system
  • Main switchgear
  • Meteorological station
  • The system checking for available mooring spots
  • Inspection and self-servicing station
  • Fire-fighting system
  • Security cameras

*The connectivity of every electromechanical system and device, whose use and operation is performed through the interactive digital control station that is capable of self-servicing users, allows for the provision of services without any personnel, since monitoring is performed through the internet, by the organization running the Negons.

Negon advantages

  • Use of green energy, friendly to the environment.
  • Allow the unobstructed inflow and stay of swimmers and tourists.
  • An original invention on an international level.
  • Capable of being immediately deployed, removed, and redeployed.
  • Create employment.
  • Increase revenue for local communities.
  • Increase traffic and interest in renting pleasure yachts.
  • The use of the specific materials and the minimal application of industrialized structural materials make the Negons environment-friendly structures with an energy saving nature, since the autonomy thereof is achieved by using renewable sources of energy.
  • The swimmers of the nearby shores are safe, thanks to the distance kept from the shoreline, following the legal provisions.
  • Not having to place a floating dock in order to allow communication between the structure, the yachts and the coast is a significant advantage with regards to safety for crews, since access is achieved only by using tenders. As a result, only the crews can reach and board the yachts.
  • The organized arrangement of the yachts in the sea helps protect the horizon, which is usually cluttered when free anchorage is allowed. Frequently, yachts drop anchor very close to the shore, making swimming difficult and creating fear to swimmers. The Negons ensure that the necessary distances from the shoreline are kept, protecting the activities of swimmers and tourists.
  • The arrangement of the yachts around the structures improves the aesthetics of the view, which comprises of the land and sea natural environment, in contrast to the unorganized dispersion of yachts in open-sea anchorage.
  • The view of the Negons and the deployment thereof in the sea is far superior than any other structure made of standard construction materials, such as concrete and visible riprap; elements that compromise and destroy natural beauty.
  • The polygonal shape, along with the excellent placement thereof offers smoother movement and traffic for the yachts around the structure, while allowing also safe mooring; this is better than waiting anchorage, and is equal to mooring performed inside a harbour.
  • Increased mechanical strength, allowing the best possible behaviour against stresses, such as winds, waves, moving and permanent loads.
  • In order to construct and deploy the Negons, no port structures are required; this renders the Negons independent and autonomous, without requiring any external land or other facility for providing power, water, and other services.
  • It is possible to deploy the Negons in areas where the construction of any port structure would be unfeasible, either due to increased cost or due to unfavourable environmental conditions.
  • The deployment of the Negons is performed within a fraction of time and can be completely removed without violating the sea ecosystem; the operating cost of the Negons is minimal, due to the fact that the automated services minimize the need for human resources in each structure.
  • The sea marking of the structure is based on the International Regulations for Avoiding Collisions at Sea and does not require the integration of the Negons in navigation maps and yachting pilots. By placing a red or green beacon with suitable range, the approaching yachts can reach the Negons from the required direction.
  • The construction of the Negons has the advantage of being a product of industrial production; as a result, it is not necessary to customize the design and construction thereof for every area of deployment. In this way, time is saved with regards to construction, along with money, with regards to cost, deployment, operation, flexibility, and transfer.
