Energy & Sustainability

Don’t let the elevator music distract you, this system can squirt water at 4 bars, or about 60 psi, as compared to a typical fire hose which packs a working pressure of 100 psi or more.

[The] system consists of a number of rotating water jet guns installed on the shipside which provide a continuous high pressure water curtain all around the ship side. The system once installed can be remotely operated from a safe location without any possibility of harm or injury to crew. The system does not require any additional installation which are costly, time consuming and might require various class or administration approvals. Furthermore it provides a visible deterrent to the pirates who will possibly divert to easier targets.
