The ecology aspects of usage the BRS SYSTEM
In the last decade or two, the number of recreational boats has increased significantly. According to our research, the number of such vessels is more than 18 million on the European and American market alone.
Most of these boats are made of plastic. They contain hazardous substances such as motor fuels, oils, anti-freeze liquids, acids, etc. and dangerous materials, such as lead in batteries, plastics, resins and adhesives.
If there comes to emission of these liquids into the sea or lake, this means a significant ecological pollution. Spillage occurs in cases where the boat sinks to the bottom of the sea or lake. Sinking is most often due to fire or ingress of water into the boat Since the rescue of sunken boats is extremely expensive and demanding, it often happens that they remain submerged, and these abandoned boats become the source of water pollution.
The most common cause of sinking is fire or ingress of water. At first, a trained crew attempts to rescue the boat by quenching the fire or discharging water from the boat. In many cases, however, when the hull is damaged, they are powerless and forced to abandon the boat. The most frequent reason of abandoning the boat is the lack of adequate rescue equipment.
With our product, the BRS (Boat Rescue System) kit, the rescuing of the damaged boat will be possible. The BRS kit contains a CO2 extinguisher, our innovative vacuum push nozzle for filling buoyancy bags and a reinforced buoyancy bag. In the case of a fire on the boat, the fire extinguisher is used to extinguish the fire. In the case of water ingress, the same fire extinguisher is used; our vacuum push nozzle is screwed onto the exhaust, allowing the crew to fill buoyancy bags and thus prevent the damaged boat from sinking. Such damaged boat remains just above the water surface and can be easily removed – taken to land in a very short time.
The immediate solution prevents the spillage of hazardous substances into the sea or lake and thus minimizes the pollution. At the same time, it significantly facilitates and shortens the time needed for the rescue of the damaged boat, since most often already the nearest boat or local rescue service are perfectly suitable for towing a floating object.
