CM Hammar AB 13 minutes

A free-floating mechanism for liferafts is defined by SOLAS as a must-have onboard and will, if correctly installed, release a vessel's life rafts in the event a ship would go under before a controlled evacuation was possible.
The Hammar H20 Hydrostatic Release Unit is a free-floating mechanism for liferafts with more than 35 years of proven track record.

This course will show what a Hydrostatic Release Unit does, how it works and how to confirm your HRU is properly installed.
