Ravebo is always keeping ourselves up to date with new Maritime Lifesafety appliances. A part of our job is keeping up with the newest SOLAS regulations.
A New amendment to SOLAS Resolution A.1050(27), will oblige all Tankers to have multi-meters that cover a minimum of the concentration of the following gasses:
- Oxygen (O2),
- Flammable gases or vapours (LEL),
- Carbon Monoxide (CO),
- Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S).
These new amendments are expected to enter into force on 1 July 2016.
We have noticed that at the moment on board of most of the vessels, when entering confined spaces, the crew only measures the occurrence of oxygen (O2) and flammable gases or vapours (LEL). So this means that these instruments are not equipped according to this new SOLAS amendment.
Ravebo B.V. can supply new meters to all classes of vessels that will meet the new directives. Not only can Ravebo supply these meters we can also calibrate the majority of gas detection equipment at very competitive rates and turnaround time within the same working day.
