Power-assisted method of recovery for larger vessels

Dacon Rescue Scoop RSA is the offshore model used by most Standby Vessels, and a variety of larger vessels around the world. It is a large semi-rigid rescue net operated by a standard deck crane. The Scoop is suspended from the ship’s side and provides an effective, rough weather recovery system with a rescue reach of about 4-6 m depending on dimensions and crane reach. The casualty is recovered in a horizontal position with full body support to avoid further injury or shock.

The system is usually deployed from the bulwark to provide protection for the crew working in the Rescue Zone. The Dacon Rescue Scoop is customized to each specific vessel, so please contact us with your vessel`s GA drawing to find the optimal solution.

The equipment is compactly stowed in a crib on the inside of the railing or on top of/inboard of the cargo rail depending on vessel design. The Scoop is light-weight and flexible and provides a gentle recovery also for injured, exhausted or unconscious persons in the water.

More than 600 vessels have been fitted with the Dacon Rescue Scoop and it has proven its value in extreme environments for many years.
