Be ready

Don’t let your fleet be detained

SOLAS Chapter II-2 requires every SOLAS-regulated ship built after 1st July 2014 to have the right fire safety equipment in place by 1st July 2018. Non-complying vessels can be detained, incurring significant costs and delays to their shipping schedule.

  • Each Fire Party on board must have at least 2 dedicated UHF handheld radios
  • All firefighting radios must meet SOLAS regulatory standards
  • Failing this can result in ports detaining each contravening vessel
  • Port fees can exceed $20,000 – $30,000 USD per day
  • Cost of delays to shipping schedules can exceed USD$100,000 per day
  • Fires can occur anytime, so you need the right equipment on board right now
