a shaft-less propulsor to minimize impact of floating ropes and debris
Ship accidents usually produce a lot of floating debris. Rescue boats, weather equipped with a water jet or a propeller, are vulnerable to debris, and can be made useless for hours if a rope gets tangled and melts into a solid mass around the drive shaft.
Rescue From beneath
Unmanned Underwater Rescue Catamaran (URC).
This is additional information and explanation to my illustration of the UURC.
The task of the UURC: Resque operations mainly for people in water, preventing drowning or freezing.
Development of a product solution for recovery to nearby ships - part of project FIRST
The project aims to create a scalable solution that enables all suitable ships to efficiently aid in mass rescue operations at sea, by recovering people in distress from survival crafts to safety on board.
Part of project FIRST - report in Swedish
This is a thesis project made in collaboration between Chalmers University of Technology and the Swedish Sea Rescue Society with the aim of developing a better method of connecting life rafts in preparation for lifting.
How might we connect a lifting wire to a liftable life raft at sea without having persons on the water doing it?
Lifting life rafts â€” with people in them â€” to the safety onboard a nearby ship, would be a very fast way to rescue people after a mass evacuation at sea. But if the helping ship has to launch a rescue boat to connect the rafts, that means putting...
Evacuation from liferafts to saftey aboard rescuing ships
This is an examination paper that evaluate the ways of efficiently evacuating rescue rafts to nearby ships.
Experiences gained from a life raft exercise
A unique 30 hour exercise in collaboration between
Chalmers and the Swedish Sea Rescue Society (SSRS). 11 participants got to
experience, as realistically as possible, an emergency situation at sea and to see which elements of risk that exists.
