Safe at Sea delivers Rescuerunner to Norwegian Red Cross.
Rotationsplast's partner and customer Safe at Sea AB is pleased to announce the delivery of its Rescuerunner boat to the Norwegian Red Cross. During the summer, they will be intensifying this collaboration as they investigate the possibility of the Norwegian Red Cross rolling out the Rescuerunner as standard for its lifeboat service.
The Norwegian Red Cross provides a lifeboat service along the whole of the Norwegian coast, an activity run primarily on a voluntary basis. The organisation comprises around 65 lifeboat stations conducting rescues on lakes, rivers and in coastal waters. The Rescuerunner will be operating in Notodden, which has large areas of water that are difficult to access.
Hydraulic oil tank for plate compactor.

The company offers a full range of products, with different sizes, engine options and levels of equipment that can easily be adapted to specific conditions.
Renewed contract with the Swedish Maritime Administration.
Rotationsplast has won the public tender to supply the Swedish Maritime Administration with spar buoys/navigational markers.
The framework agreement is set to run for 3 ½ years, starting in January 2011.
The Swedish Maritime Administration is responsible for marine safety and accessibility, with work on the Swedish shipping channels as one of its core duties. Maintenance, marking, planning and improving the channels is an ongoing process in maintaining environmental and marine safety.
To ensure that shipping can navigate safely, the maritime administration maintains lighthouses, marker buoys, spar buoys, radar beacons and so on.
Nord Stream’s impact on the Baltic Sea.
Rotationsplast has supplied 700/6 beacons (navigational markers) for a measurement station that is part of a project being run by the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute in the Baltic Sea. One aim of the initiative is to examine how the Nord Stream project is affecting the Baltic Sea.
Nord Stream is a gas pipeline that will link Russia with the European Union, via the Baltic Sea, providing businesses and households with natural gas. The new pipeline will be a key factor in energy security for Europe.
