Icelandic sea rescue station invests in another RescueRunner system

Report this content

Björgunarsveitin Eining, a rescue team based in the town of Breiðdalsvík on the east side of Iceland has now had their first RescueRunner system for two years and decided to invest in another one.

After attending a presentation/demonstration made by Safe at Sea in Fáskrúðsfjörður; Iceland three years ago, the Björgunarsveitin Eining team were closely studying their "sister" sea rescue team in Fáskrúðsfjörður who invested in a Rescuerunner system already then at the time. They were impressed with how versatile and what a great work the RescueRunners did for the Fáskrúðsfjörður team and in 2019 decided to invest in their first own RescueRunner system. 

"We use the RescueRunner for search and rescue close to the shore as well as a first response to the small fishing boats working in our bay. There are many small islands and reefs in our bay and we can see that the RescueRunner is more convenient than the "Zodiac RIB D-Class" for those situations. And to be honest, it's been a long-term dream to have two RescueRunners"; says Ingólfur Finnsson, Head of the Björgunarsveitin Eining team.

The RescueRunner system will be delivered during Q2 2021

Order Value: 286 000 SEK
