Gas Detection: New regulations, new solutions

The latest SOLAS X1-1/7 regulation approved by MSC 93/94 require all ships engaged in international voyages to have, at the very least, one* portable 4-gas detection unit on board.
Published: (Wilhelmsen Ships Service, Marine products)

Crew training on using gas detectors will also be mandatory.

Recalibration and certification of gas detectors must be carried out according to OEM requirements.
