Ocean Safety is to supply a set of Dacon maritime rescue equipment to two vessels operated by Vroon Offshore Services in a six-figure contract.

Ocean Safety, which is the U.K.’s exclusive distributor of the Dacon range, will be showing the Dacon man overboard recovery products selected by Vroon at Seawork in June.

The two vessels, which are both based in Aberdeen, will each take delivery of a 5m x 10m Dacon RSA Scoop with a catch net, a Dacon RB300 rescue basket and four Dacon Scrambling Nets which are 3.5m in depth.

The Dacon Rescue Scoop is 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 Scoop’s recovery net forms a cradle in the water and can be positioned underneath the person(s) in the water, giving full length body support, and reducing the possibility of injury aggravation, before being lifted clear of the water. The rescue scoop has the capacity to efficiently rescue numerous casualties.

The Dacon Scrambling Net provides a rigid, nonslip climbing and grip surface whose rigid rungs combined with heavy duty webbing makes it easy to climb. Hauling lines are fitted for active recovery of casualties unable to climb to safety.

This application is offered in any dimension, therefore can be installed on all types and size of vessel, including wind farm support boats.

The Dacon Rescue Basket is a rugged aluminum rescue basket with soft padding. It has a large float in the mast to prevent capsizing and net covered sides for safety. The fenders rotate for easy "float-in" access from the sea as well as for protection when hauled against the ship side during recovery.

Vroon Offshore Services operates over 100 vessels internationally from its offices in Aberdeen, Den Helder, Genoa and Singapore.
