    Default WBV Awareness Courses promoted at Seawork

    FRC International (stand B181) has developed one day WBV (Whole Body Vibration) Awareness Courses to educate the professional maritime sector about the effects of WBV on crew and passengers.

    The maritime sector recognises the need to reduce the effects of Whole Body Vibration (WBV) but it is not a straightforward process for those operating RIBs and High Speed Craft. These vessels can expose employees and workers to high levels of repeated shock and vibration which has been shown to increase the risk of acute and chronic injury. WBV can affect back, neck, knees and joints.

    Dr Trevor Dobbins and John Haynes, Director, FRC International, will present a paper on this subject and launch a one-day WBV Awareness Course at Seawork (1515 hrs, Conference Room 1, Tuesday 22 May).

    The WBV MANAGER course is for managers, officers, employers and operators of RIBs and planing craft. The WBV CREW course is for all professional coxswains and crew.

    FRC International WBV Awareness Courses, recognised by The Nautical Institute, are relevant to military, search & rescue, government agencies, local authorities, police, wind farm, oil & gas, thrill rides, charter, powerboat schools and all organisations operating planing craft.

    FRC WBV courses are also relevant to naval architects, marine surveyors and boat builders. WBV courses provide the background to the European Vibration Directive legislation, effective 6th July 2010, requires employers to control exposure to hazards including noise and vibration.

    Default New Annex 10 Crew 100 seating from KPM

    With the High Speed Craft Code Annex 10 having come into force earlier this year, Seawork exhibitor KPM Marine (stand A263) will put the spotlight on its new Crew 100 seating system.

    KPM is the only company currently producing a seat which satisfies both the new Annex 10 requirement and also complies with the EU’s whole body vibration regulations. Offshore wind farm support vessels built to the DNV classification must be fitted with seats complying with Annex 10.

    Tests have shown that only 30% of the forces encountered by boat passengers are vertical, the other 70% coming from fore and aft movements. The elliptical travel path of the KPM seats counters those forces and results in a seat which is nearly 100% efficient.

    This is borne out by impressive test results which result in a Head Injury Criterion of only 29 compared to the figure of 500 allowed by Annex 10. For neck flexion, which is the main cause of whiplash, the Crew 100 seat allowed only 1.46Nm compared to the High Speed Code specified safe limit of 88Nm.

    KPM seats have undergone extensive comfort trials, delivering a high level of occupant satisfaction and reducing fatigue by maintaining a neutral spine position. They also reduce pressure points by eliminating unnecessary seat moulding. These lightweight, double acting seats thus deliver engineers to offshore wind turbines with their cognitive capabilities still intact - useful when transferring onto and climbing turbine towers.

    Following rigorous design protocols has brought Seawork honours to KPM Marine. The company won the prestigious Spirit of Innovation Award at Seawork 2009 for its Run Dry Pumping System. This was followed by the Vessel Design category award in 2010 for its Triple Stage Shock Mitigation Seating; KPM was then runner-up for the top award last year for its Eco-Mast Renewable Onboard Power Generation.

    In addition to its seating systems, the full range of KPM Marine’s design innovation will be on display for visitors to Stand A263 at Seawork 2012.

    Default Shockjockey Seating by Vortec Systems Ltd

    Shockjockey (berth 6A) is a single person jockey seat designed to increase safety and comfort by dramatically reducing fatigue and the risk of injury when operating fast boats in rough sea conditions.

    Designed with professional use in mind, where a reliable, functional, durable and easy to maintain product is required, Shockjockey is an affordable way to implement quality suspension seating.

    The product is manufactured from a range of innovative materials, each chosen for their suitability to the harsh marine environment; all metallic components are produced from 316L stainless steel and A4 fasteners used throughout.

    The mechanism is fully enclosed to keep ropes and deck equipment away from moving parts; a flexible gaiter can be dropped instantly for routine inspection.

    Vortec Systems (www.vortecsystems.co.uk) is exhibiting Shockjockey Seating on its RIB (berth V6A) and look forward to welcoming visitors for an on-the-water trial.

    Default Zodiac Milpro® At Seawork

    Zodiac MILPRO Sector demonstrated its class-leading Sea Rib® Responders® 750 RIBs at the Seawork exhibition in Southampton, UK, where visitors had the opportunity of experiencing its power and performance during on-water demonstrations from the pontoon. The SRR 750 is now the fourth model in Zodiac’s successful Sea Rib® Responders® series with the show model being powered by twin 130HP outboards and was fitted with 4 shock mitigation seats.

    This recently introduced boat is practical and versatile and completes the SRR product range by fitting neatly within the existing 4 m, 6.5 m and 8.7 m boats. Although Zodiac Milpro is well-known for the performance and durability of its 9 m (8.7 m) RIBs that are widely used by military and security professionals, the features on the new SRR 750 are making it popular with users seeking a slightly smaller boat.

    With the SRR 750, Zodiac Milpro Sector’s designers have followed the company’s policy of making a boat that is tough, simple to use and easy to maintain. It is intended to provide the highest standards of performance, handling and user comfort through advanced hull design and the company’s detailed understanding of RIB technology.

    The Sea Rib® Responder® 750 is capable of carrying seven people as a total payload of 1750 kg in the company’s Design Category B or 16 people within a 2400 kg payload in Category C. Being built to meet the demands of the professional market, all of Sea Rib® Responders® have reinforced hulls that are capable of withstanding extreme shocks and G-forces when they are pushed to their limit while fully laden.

    The 750 introduced new features to the SRR series that include built-in large capacity fuel tanks, practical bow and stern lockers, a self-bailing deck and below-deck cable routing. A deck hatch provides access to the fuel gauge and connections and there is a removable cover for tank maintenance and possible change. The deck area is open and uncluttered and is strongly reinforced. This allows customers to choose from Zodiac Milpro’s® wide range of steering consoles, bolsters and other equipment in various customized configurations.

    A challenge for the Zodiac Milpro Sector marketing team at Seawork was to choose just two boats to exhibit from a range that now extends to 40 different RIBs and inflatables. The company believes it can offer a boat suitable for any job on the water and chose to show the FC-470® EVO on its stand to represent the capabilities of its inflatables. The Zodiac Milpro® FC-470® EVO features an inflatable floor which enables it to combine the performance and handling attributes of rigid deck boat with the easy-stow capability of a conventional inflatable. The new boat is already proving popular with emergency services that have been quick to spot the benefits of buying new boats that can do the job of two different types. The Zodiac Milpro® FC-470® is already well established with military users throughout the world but the introduction of a version with an inflatable floor significantly extends its capabilities. The boat’s unique hull shape enables it to carry heavy loads while retaining exceptional maneuverability. The inflatable floor reduces the boat’s weight by 30 kgs and combines with a deeper V hull to improve performance and crew comfort. It can now be powered by a 55 hp outboard engine which can give it exceptional on-water performance.

    The Zodiac Military and Professional (MILPRO) sector supplies inflatable and semi-rigid craft for professional users such as police, coast guard, special forces, anti-terrorism units, fire teams, the offshore industry and other military users. The boats it manufactures range from 4.7m to 12m long and are available in configurations that include inflatable and rigid inflatable boats with aluminium or fibreglass hull designs, inflatable or foam tubes, diesel inboard or petrol outboard engines.

    Default Yamaha at Seawork

    New Yamaha F150B outboard for professional and commercial users
    Seawork sees the launch of the latest outboard for commercial applications available in the UK for the first time – the new Yamaha F150B. This engine was developed from the highly successful Yamaha F150A to further increase its suitability for commercial users where the engine is more likely to be used on heavy duty craft operating for long periods at low to medium engine speeds. As with all new Yamaha engines for commercial use there is a two-year warranty, subject to terms and conditions.

    Three X-shaft outboard variants designed for larger craft
    Yamaha has also increased the choice of four-stroke engines with the introduction of three new X-shaft variants of the popular F70, F80 and F100 models for 2012. These X-shaft engines are suitable for larger, more substantial craft with 25” transom heights, found on many RIBs, commercial boats and catamarans.

    Yamaha small outboard success for swift-water applications
    For the flood and rescue market, where portability and load-carrying performance are crucial, Yamaha have developed the 25N two-stroke model on display. This model has several bespoke accessories tailored to special needs – optional lightweight carry handles, for speedy deployment as well as a new design of propeller guard, shaped to give greatest strength, with minimum water-flow disturbance to the propeller giving maximum performance when required. These options are for both larger and smaller outboards as well as protective, high-visibility outboard covers which can be given a logo or corporate styling.

    Yamaha recently supplied 25N two-stroke outboards for the Lincoln Fire & Rescue fleet of inflatables.

    Three outstanding examples of new Yamaha outboard power installations on berths
    Berth V56 This Redbay 8.4m RIB c/w Yamaha F250 is in use with Skandia Life Team GBR as RYA Team Operations hub and floating HQ for Stephen Park, OBE, and RYA Olympic Manager at British Sailing. The RIB’s electronics enable checking on the home team’s performance as well offering rest and repairs to save race crews from having to return to base between activities.
    The forward cockpit has been designed to make it a very safe working environment, with a deep cockpit, easily accessed chain locker and very secure deck footing. The all-round screen provides excellent visibility, while the fixed canopy arrangement provides a permanent shelter from rain, wind or sun. Additional side curtains can completely enclose the cabin area if need be, while deck space is used for carrying spare rigs.

    Ribcraft stand Q17
    Ribcraft Boats are displaying a 6.5 custom built RIB, with six Ullman full-suspension seats, powered by twin Yamaha F80. The craft is one of two identical models used for rig crew transfers and is coded to 10 persons.

    Full Yamaha range for commercial use
    Yamaha Motor (UK) has a vast range of outboards including two and four-stroke, tiller or remote control, electric and manual from 2.5 to 350hp.
    Yamaha has twenty-eight key models from the two and four-stroke outboard ranges which meet the required MED standards and are supplied with the appropriate Wheelmark identification.
    Despite recent changes to the EU regulations preventing traditional carburetor two-stroke outboards being sold to the European recreational market, Yamaha continues to be a major two-stroke outboard supplier to the professional, commercial and rescue markets in the UK - for example the RNLI Atlantic 75 uses twin Yamaha two-stroke 75hp outboards. In many developing countries outside of the EU, two-strokes are still available to leisure users and are therefore still manufactured in large quantities.

    Commercial and professional market installations demand ultimate operational range, minimal sound emissions, high quality, reliable power and minimum down-time. So Yamaha four-stroke outboards are proving to be the No. 1 choice of professionals.

    As further examples, the latest RNLI Atlantic 85 series of RIBs is powered by twin Yamaha F115 and Skandia Life Team GBR Sailing Team solely use Yamaha outboards through 60, 70 and 250hp - with the fleet completing more than 20,000 hours per year.

    These important contracts followed extensive sea trials of all major brands’ two and four-stroke outboards, with Yamaha proving superior and best meeting the stringent operational requirements.

    Yamaha Pro WaterCraft WaveRunner for active policing, safety and on-water control
    Yamaha are displaying a Pro Watercraft, currently with for Dorset Police for use in high-profile events where on-water management has to be responsive to immediate situations. And this year will prove the ultimate challenge in all respects. Yamaha has manufactured the WaveRunner range of Personal Watercraft for over 25 years, with Yamaha proving to be the No.1 product of choice in the professional market, saving countless lives in surf-rescue applications around the world. For more visit the stand or see:
    http://www.yamahamotor.eu/uk/product...ers/vxpro.aspx

    Yamaha Pro product training and handling skills
    All Yamaha Pro products can be tailored to meet users’ specific requirements, with appropriate product and skills training facilities arranged to meet any applicable UK legislation. Training courses are customised to individual requirements by instructors who understand the need for both the theory and practice related to end-use locations.

    RNLI and Yamaha Motor (UK) in new partnership
    Two of the best known and respected names in the marine world announced recently a new partnership that will bring benefits not only to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) and Yamaha Motor UK, but also to boaters throughout the UK. Every purchaser, using an authorised dealer or OEM, buying a new Yamaha outboard engine, from the smallest F2.5 to the mighty F350, V8, will receive a 12-month free RNLI Offshore membership worth £68, supporting the RNLI at the same time. These same RNLI benefits also apply to new purchases of Yamaha E-drives and WaveRunner PWCs from authorised Yamaha dealers in the UK.
    Members will receive free RNLI publications including The Lifeboat, RNLI Compass and Offshore. Other benefits include free sea safety advice and product discounts, an RNLI membership card giving access to the RNLI’s College in Poole and the opportunity to attend the RNLI’s Annual Presentation of Awards.

    The new partnership is a natural progression of the existing supply relationship between Yamaha and the RNLI. The charity has been using Yamaha outboards on various rescue craft for more than 15 years.
    More recently, the RNLI has not only specified Yamaha WaveRunner VX personal watercraft for lifeguard beach rescue, but also selected the F115 outboard to power the charity’s fleet of Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboats.

    See www.yamaha-motor.co.uk for detailed Yamaha product information across all ranges.
