The Dacon Rescue Scoop and the Dacon Rescue Frame

Ocean Safety has announced that the company has agreed a contract to supply two Port of London Authority (PLA) vessels with Dacon man overboard recovery equipment.

The Dacon products are to be supplied in July to the vessels - the Verifier, a 21-meter monohull and the Yantlet, a 15-meter catamaran. The Verifier will be supplied with a Dacon Rescue Scoop, a crane operated recovery system favored by commercial vessels, which is a maneuverable rescue net normally stowed compactly against the bulwark or railing when not in use.

The Yantlet will carry the Dacon Rescue Frame, a smaller manually operated system of articulated glass webbing, which is also compactly stored.

Both vessels are coded to operate up to 60 miles offshore, and undertake work on the Thames and for third parties around the U.K.

In both cases the recovery nets form a cradle in the water and can be positioned underneath the person in the water, giving full length body support, and reducing the possibility of injury aggravation, before being lifted clear of the water.

Ocean Safety is the exclusive U.K. distributor for Dacon AS in Norway, manufacturers of the maritime man overboard rescue equipment.

John Dillon-Leetch, Deputy Port Hydrographer at the Port of London Authority, said, “We cover 95 miles of the River Thames and work to keep commercial and leisure river and estuary users safe.”

He added, “While underway our vessels have a number of different functions and that means we could be attending an incident of a person in the water in the Thames, if we are the nearest vessel. We therefore have to be equipped ready for an efficient casualty recovery, even if we are short handed.”

The Port of London Authority also protects and enhances the environment and promotes the use of the river for trade and travel.
