Goodchild Marine has designed a MOB recovery platform system that can be fitted to existing vessels or incorporated into new constructions.

Tony Birr, Business Development, Goodchild Marine said, "The MOB recovery platform observes all relevant legislation, follows the latest medical guidelines in survivor recovery, is very easy to use and maintain and can be operated by one person.”

“A survivor can be lifted horizontally; key features include an automatically hinged propeller guard to prevent injury to the casualty, manual back-up, self-cleaning tracks, and an extension below water level to aid the recovery of a floating casualty.”

“The system is tested and certified for lifting three people and can be lifted to deck level for easy stretcher access.”

“Whilst we install it on all our new pilot boats as standard it can also be retro fitted to vessels and has been exported as far as Australia for exactly that purpose. Whilst its primary function is for MOB, the system was first introduced on one of the Hampshire Constabulary vessels and it has also been used for diving operations, ROV operations, recovery of Flotsam and Jetsam plus as a very dignified body recovery platform."

The working model of the MOB recovery platform system will be on stand PB38 and a full-size operational version on the stern of the ORC 136 on berth V39/41
