Hovercraft Safety And Rescue Services

UKDS Provide commercial hovercraft for the standby safety and rescue of operatives working over tidal waterways where shallow water and mud exposure present real hazards. In the event of an emergency conventional craft cannot access any shallow tidal area during low tide preventing recovery or rescue of any operatives. In this situation a hovercraft is the only real option for a safe rescue plan.

Additionally hovercraft are also useful and can save time and costs where vessels choose to remain on site and bottom out at low tide. The hovercraft allows for safe crew and cargo transfers between anchorage and shore.
