The Finnish Lifeboat Institute ordered a new SAR boat
Tuesday 3 january, 2023
A 10-meter lifeboat equipped with one Kongsberg waterjet and Cummins 550 hp engine reaches a top speed of 35 knots. It has sea rescue equipment, including light firefighting and emergency pumping equipment and equipment for first aid tasks. In addition, the boat has a hydraulically opening bow ramp, which improves the capabilities of beach landings and facilitates patient transfer to the boat.
In mid-September 2022, the 125-year-old Finnish Lifeboat Institute organized a charity gala for its partners and supporters at Hotel Clarion Helsinki. The theme of the maritime rescue gala was Time to say thank you. The proceeds of the gala will be used for voluntary sea rescue activities. Kewatec participated in the event to support the Finnish Lifeboat Institute's valuable work.
