A history of creating environments that exist in ecological harmony with the land.
The vision for the YCCS Marina is mindful of the many elements of nature and the preservation of our breathtaking surroundings. Renewable energy resources and global leading-edge eco-technologies provide principal elements of the infrastructure.
YCCS Marina is committed to the journey of environmental excellence that will continuously evolve as emerging state-of-the-art technologies, innovations and new ideas come to the marketplace.
We are implementing environmentally-conscious infrastructure foundations that will help YCCS Marina respectfully maintain the integrity of the island's natural beauty. In addition, YCCS is utilizing zero-emissions G.E.M. cars (Global Electric Motorized Vehicles) for transportation
YCCS Marina Dock Design
Bellingham Marine, one of our experienced partners in this enterprise, specializes in the installation of floating docks. The innovative design of the dock allows the underside to act as a floating ecosystem for marine life. Not only do docks of this type provide a more natural surface to interact with the aquatic habitat, they cause fewer bottom disturbances and reduced water turbidity which helps maintain water quality.
Additionally, the environmental integrity of the site is protected by the use of HDPE sleeves on the steel dock pilings. These sleeves prevent oxygen from interacting with the steel, which slows corrosion and deterioration. Selected for its ability to outlast other materials, locally sourced concrete is used on an "as needed" basis, helping to eliminate waste.
YCCS Marina and Oil Nut Bay Environmental Team
YCCS Marina and Oil Nut Bay are fortunate to harness the knowledge and expertise of visionary, Dr. Larry Oswald as Environmental Team Leader. Dr. Oswald spent the last 10 years at the Chrysler Corporation as CEO of Chrysler's Global Electric Motorcars LLC (GEM) subsidiary, growing GEM into a successful and profitable electric vehicle business, with nearly 37,000 vehicles sold world-wide during this time.
Through Dr. Oswald's direction, YCCS Marina and Oil Nut Bay are setting a new standard in responsible, sustainable developments.
Today, Dr. Oswald is funneling his passion for conservation, recycling and renewable energy generation into YCCS Marina and Oil Nut Bay. He directs the planning, installation and operational assurances of our integrated community services and energy management systems, making use of nature's abundance of energy -- wind and sun.
