Tech News Summary:
- The Port of Milford Haven in Wales will be testing Zelim’s Swift rescue transporter technology on its pilot vessels, including its new state-of-the-art pilot vessel, due to the high sea states and exposure to Atlantic surge.
- Zelim had previously demonstrated the Swift transporter technology on the River Forth for pilots and launch crews, successfully completing several man overboard recoveries in less than a minute from the point of first contact.
- The port will work closely with Zelim to optimize the Swift system for its specific needs and will be developing and testing it in challenging conditions. The modified design will be suitable for pilot boats globally.
In a bid to revolutionize Milford Haven pilot boats, cutting-edge rescue technology developed by Zelim has taken the lead. Zelim’s life-saving technology offers a safer, faster and more efficient way of rescuing people in distress.
The technology uses a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) equipped with a high-definition camera and a manipulator arm to reach out and grab people who have fallen overboard or are struggling in the water. The ROV can navigate through the water with ease, even in rough weather conditions.
The Milford Haven Pilotage Service has already started using Zelim’s technology on their pilot boats, and the results have been impressive. “It’s a game-changer,” said Steve Atkinson, Chief Pilot for the Milford Haven Pilotage Service. “It’s made our work so much safer and more efficient.”
The technology is also equipped with a GPS tracking system, which enables rescuers to locate people in distress quickly and accurately. Furthermore, it can be operated remotely, allowing rescuers to stay at a safe distance from any dangerous situations.
The Milford Haven Pilotage Service is no stranger to innovation, having previously introduced a safety ladder system that enables pilots to climb safely from one boat to another. However, Zelim’s technology takes safety to a whole new level.
Zelim’s CEO, Ali Bazzi, said: “We are thrilled to see our technology being used to save lives. The Milford Haven Pilotage Service is at the forefront of innovation, and we are proud to be supporting them in their mission to make their work safer and more efficient.”
With Zelim’s technology taking the lead, it’s clear that the future of rescue operations in Milford Haven is looking bright.
