ACR EPIRBs Selected by AMSA

Friday, December 14, 2007
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) has approved a multi-year commitment with RFD Australia to purchase over 500 EPIRBs manufactured by U.S.-based ACR Electronics, Inc. RFD, a world leading manufacturer of marine safety products and inflatable watercraft, and an ACR distributor, said the contract called for several hundred SATELLITE2 406 and GlobalFix ACR EPIRB models.

The tender for the EPIRBs was let and managed by AMSA, which is responsible for setting and regulating standards for the operation of commercial shipping, the operation of an extensive network of marine navigation aids around the Australian coast, aviation and maritime search and rescue, and the protection of the marine environment.

The ACR SATELLITE2 406 EPIRBs are destined for Thursday Island where local Water Police will make the EPIRBs available to local citizens. The GlobalFix 406 EPIRBs are to be used by a variety of government agencies in Brisbane. Acknowledging the OH&S implications of providing a safe work environment for employees who go to work on the water, these EPIRBs are to be directed to agencies that include Water Police, Customs and Coast Watch.
