BEDFORD, N.H., Aug. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Falco Americas Corp. (FALCO), a marine IoT solutions provider, announces a new project with Glover Wharf Municipal Marina in Beverly, Massachusetts.
The Glover Wharf project will include mobile boat monitoring for both Commercial Fisherman and Recreational Boaters, as well as a presence-based solution that will help the Beverly Harbor Management Authority (BHMA) better understand transient boat traffic.
"The first phase of the project is centered around three goals" said Paul Earl, Chairman of BHMA. "We want to continue to provide the highest levels of safety and security available to our boaters at the marina, acquire the capability to collect transient boater activity data at the public dock for future analysis, and create and deliver new transient boater services that will connect Glover Wharf and our local Beverly businesses. "
The project is already under way with FALCO presence sensors deployed and collecting data related to transient boat traffic, and rollout of remote boat monitoring has begun.
"In addition, the project has captured the imagination of city officials" says Jim LaMarche, General Manager at FALCO. "The idea of utilizing the municipal waterfront as a gateway to main street and capturing incremental visiting boater revenue without creating new traffic concerns is an exciting proposition for Beverly".
The third part of the project is scheduled to begin mid-summer, and will include the FALCO Digital Marketplace, where select 3rd-party marine service providers and retailers will be welcomed in to offer their services online to residents and transient boaters.
