The Spanish Maritime Safety Agency, a State executive agency attached to the Ministry of Development, attended this past summer a total of 1,328 rescues related to leisure boats along the Spanish coasts. The number of people rescued in these emergencies during this period were about 3,879.
The causes of leisure boats emergencies have mainly been mechanical failures, stranding, leak, fire / explosion and sinking or overturning.
We want to remind that before going out to sail one of the main priorities should be safety and prevention. Let's not forget that even if we are a few miles from the coast, an emergency situation especially with children, can lead to an undesirable end if we are not well equipped. Life jackets, man overboard devices and life rafts are essential in coastal navigation.
Within our catalog, our lifejackets, the Sea Tags device and our Duarry Coast Liferaft offer the security that every navigator and his crew need.

Antwerp maritime group CMB pioneers environmentally friendly shipping with Latest Hydrogen-Powered Vessel.
The Hydroville is a pilot project for the use of hydrogen technology on large, oceangoing ships. Hydrogen can be extracted from the environment (ex. water) relatively simply, and does not release any CO2, atmospheric particulate matter or sulfur oxides when it is combusted.
As a reference in maritime safety, Ausmar has supported this project by providing the vessel with Duarry Liferafts.
The Hydroville is fitted with 16 seats that can be set up in three different configurations. Besides the commuter configuration, they can also be set up for meetings, with all the seats placed around a large central table. It will commute daily between Kruibeke and Antwerp to provide an efficient, environmentally-friendly transport. The vessel will also function as a base for demonstrating the use of hydrogen in shipping and will be sent out to attend events all around Europe in this context.
