MSS Marine Safety Patents Launching Device

Wednesday, July 19, 2000
Sweden-based MSS Marine Safety Systems introduced a patented launching device for fast rescue boats. Drop tests, side impact tests and sea trials, including docking at a speed of eight knots on open sea, have been finalized - proving successful performance in open sea conditions.

In order to launch and retrieve a fast rescue boat safely and quickly, MSS Marine has formulated a floating dock, which corresponds to the motion of the boat. The dock is launched and retrieved together with the boat by conventional davits or a crane - either as a single point lift or the more stable tow point lift. The dock is connected to the ship not only by the hoisting wire (s), but also by a painter line where the dock is towed alongside the ship.
