Search and Rescue / maritime salvage

Search and Rescue
Search and Rescue

Maritime salvage takes too long
The developed positioning concept solves that problem. Since this problem cannot be sorted out by the engine power of the emergency vehicles, there is just one possibility left: the driven distances must be shortened. For this purpose the rescue cruisers are no longer based at harbours but permanantly offshore by what the distances to the sites of operation at high seas are reduced extremely. To realize this, an artificial island serves as the home port. For this operation purpose a rescue cruiser was drafted and designed. Many solutions in every detail ease the daily work of the rescuer.
