Weathedock: Next European national customs authority is using AIS SART easyRESCUE for all crewmen
The national authority is controlling the external borders to prevent drug smuggling into Europe. Crewmen on a mission in very fast moving zodiac rips need to be self-protected in case of “MOB – man over board” scenario. The mission can’t be stopped. It has to be granted that the MOB victim is supported from the base vessel to take care of him, Weatherdock press release said.
AIS SART easyRESCUE – automatically activation
The personal locating beacon easyRESCUE is mounted in a special pocket inside the automatic life jacket and fixed with a hook on a short rip cord. In case the life jacket is submerged into water, it starts to inflate immediately. As soon as the rip cord becomes too short, the AIS PLB is triggered automatically to broadcast to the base vessel.
AIS SART easyRESCUE – approved with best possible performance
Weatherdock is known as a reliable business partner from several projects in the past with national authorities and Navy’s around the world. The personal life saving equipment was tested and approved many times with best possible performance. The AIS SART easyRESCUE is fully SOLAS approved by IMO which symbols the highest possible quality level of maritime products because only “wheel marked” SOLAS approved are allowed to be used in commercial shipping.
