One RescueRunner sold to Iceland

Safe at Sea carried out a very successful tour on Iceland June 17 to June 22. Already into the middle of the promotion tour, the interest was immense for the product and its capabilities and the demo RescueRunner was subsequently sold to the sea rescue station Björgunarsveitin Geisli in Fáskrúðsfjörður, on the east coast of Iceland.

RescueRunner proved to be a useful tool for SAR operations in the harsh Icelandic environment. Our demo RescueRunner built in 2010, met the different challenges along the Icelandic coast as well as on the white water river Ölfusá.

The tour was a huge success with seven demonstrations to over sixty sea rescuers as well as appearing on national tv news at prime time. This caused Björgunarsveitin Geisli in Fáskrúðsfjörður to purchase our demo-RescueRunner for immediate use. After testing the RescueRunner in their home waters they were convinced it was a very useful tool for them.

The demo-RescueRunner was built in 2010 and is in very good condition. It has over the years been doing demonstrations around all of Northern Europe including Estonia, the BP (British Petroleum) North Sea oil platform tests and river trials and training in Norway.

“This once again shows that RescueRunner is built to last even in extreme conditions where more leisure oriented alternatives are not an option.”, says CEO Kaj Lehtovaara.

The deal is worth around SEK 200 000.
