We act as project managers for search and rescue humanitarian operations. We oversaw the creation of the Banksy-funded vessel, the Louise Michel, to fruition and its first missions in the central Mediterranean. She is now operation once again.
Over the last year we have prepared and mobilised Aurora, an ex-RNLI Trent class lifeboat, for deployment in the central Mediterranean. She is operated by Sea-Watch e.v and has already been deployed on rescue operations.
We are assisting a number of NGOs with specialist SAR equipment, one of these projects is orientated around 3 new SAR RHIBS destined to support a larger parent vessel in the central Mediterranean.
We have access to specialist search and rescue boats and equipment. We conduct repairs as necessary, ensuring this is high quality and with safe and donate them to be used by those in the field.
We created a mobile workshop facility involving high level welding and fabrication capabilities for use in shipyards where NGOs and the civil fleet operate in order to reduce costs and delays. The truck is currently in use for coming up to a year, used by 3+ NGOs on a daily basis.
Our new headquarters site is in London, close to transport links and with access to the River Thames. It is currently being prepared to hold a design and fabrication centre and office and meeting space. We plan for this to be available for others who need some space to work too - give us a shout if you want to chat more about this!
We are proud to be part of the collective at Domeview, with great community spirit and atmosphere.
Over the upcoming months we hope to focus on providing training for volunteers who go out to search and rescue environments. We will draw upon a vast bank of knowledge and experience and provide training for equipment as well as in the water.
