The preview of the new Manoverboard (MOB) Mark 9 at SMM 2012 drew strong interest among the commercial and leisure shipping sectors.

The life-saving device was also well received by the energy sector as it has a drop height of 60 metres, double the 30 metres required by SOLAS (Safety Of Life At Sea) regulations, which makes it suitable for use on oil and gas rigs.

Pains Wessex is a leading brand of marine distress signals and is manufactured by UK-based Drew Marine Signal and Safety.

The next generation MOB’s benefits include being:
·         Smaller – at 375mm
·         Lighter – 3.8kg, including the bracket
·         Easier to install – ‘fit and forget’
·         Safe to use on oil-covered water
·         Suitable for a drop height of up to 60metres
·         Simple to replace individual LED bulbs

Managing Director Justine Heeley says, “The team at Drew Marine Signal and Safety received a lot of interest from distributors, potential customers and the marine press about the new Manoverboard. Everyone was impressed by the new improved features, the latest technological advances and the highest levels of safety provided for both commercial and leisure marine customers.”
