Martek Marine's new products

With a focus on improving ship safety, performance and crew welfare, Martek Marine adds two new products to its shipping industry range

In the spring issue of Pelican we announced that James Fisher had acquired Martek Marine (Martek) which supplies specialised marine equipment to the shipping industry aiming to improve ship safety, performance and crew welfare.

Importantly, Martek has recently added two new products to its range, offering the latest in new technologies and solutions to its customers:

Advanced communications

Martek has added KVH to its product offering, n advanced satellite communication system (the leading maritime service) which uses high-speed and expanded VSAT coverage available on a monthly subscription (no contract) with free installation. KVH provides the shipping industry with fast, secure and expanded global connectivity.

Combined portable water testing

Also recently added to Martek's product range is the Sewage Effluent Test Kit, an all-in-one portable testing solution for onboard testing of effluent. When used in conjunction with DrinkSafe (a potable water test kit) it ensures all tests comply with stringent water testing legislation. This new testing kit has been designed to provide users with simple and economical testing methods, which require no training and are fully compliant with the MLC 2006 & MARPOL ANNEX IV onboard water testing legislation.


Saving lives

With its core focus on the safety and welfare of crew, these two new offerings join Martek’s flagship product, the Lifeforce AED which is an easy-to-use defibrillator. Defibrillators can increase survival rates of cardiac arrests by 75% when applied in the first three minutes so having them installed at a place of work, both on and offshore, can save lives.

Stuart Ovington, Martek’s head of global sales explained:

‘A major part of our mission is crew welfare, and the Lifeforce AED is an important piece of kit when seafarers face risk of cardiac arrest every day through accidental electrocution or drowning.’

The Lifeforce AED has already saved dozens of lives. A recent example of its easy-to-use capability was demonstrated recently when a Belfast man with no training or first aid experience was able to use the Lifeforce AED to save his colleague’s life.

A simple picture card on the product shows exactly how and where to apply the pads and a recorded voice then clearly explains subsequent steps.

It is set up to ensure a shock is only delivered when necessary making it impossible to deliver a shock by accident.
