Ausmar has everything settled to attend, the next 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th September, the leading international trade fair of the maritime industry, SMM 2014. Hamburg’s German city has been, again, this year’s choice to celebrate this event, which has turned to be an unavoidable appointment for the representatives of the shipbuilding and marine equipment industries from all parts of the world.
International Safety Products’ Open Day held the past Tuesday 15th July in the historical maritime surroundings of Liverpool’s Albert Dock made the most of the day: in addition to displaying the latest safety marine products, ISP took advantage of the occasion to gather clients and providers in a pleasant BBQ next to the dock. The main attraction, however, was the recently revamped range of Duarry liferafts live demonstration, which included the deployment and testing of Throw Overboard (TOB), liferafts models.
The Barcelona School of Nautical Studies, together with Ausmar, organises today the maritime safety exercise “Surviving 24 hours in a liferaft”. In order to show the students all practical details about the survival in dire conditions, the exercise will simulate a sinking in which 10 people will be abandoned, without food nor beverage, in a Duarry liferaft for 24 hours.
