Dacon announced it has again been contracted to deliver its Dacon Rescue Scoop to a service vessel in the offshore wind industry. This is the fifth vessel in a series of carbon fiber SWATH designs that Odfjell Wind AS are building at Danish Yachts, all of which have been equipped with the MOB rescue system, Dacon said.

These systems have traditionally been in use on standby vessels that provide rescue capability to oil and gas rigs but are now gaining momentum in the offshore wind industry.

According to Dacin, its Rescue Scoop enables man over board recovery and rescue in rough weather on vessels with few crewmembers, and with the ability to maneuver the vessel and crane from the same position it is even possible for the master to perform single-handed rescue.

The owner Fredric Odfjell, said, “We feel that this rescue net is the best and most reliable lifesaving system for our type of vessels used for the wind energy offshore market.”

One of the Captains, Billy, added, “From MOB alarm sounds, we can pick someone up safely within three to four minutes. With our system on board SWATH boats, we meet great positive response from our charterers.”
