The new Pains Wessex Manoverboard (MOB) Mark 9 has improved features and a lighter and more compact design. It has a drop height of 60 meters—double the 30 meters required by SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) regulations—which makes it suitable for use on oil and gas rigs.
Other benefits include the product’s smaller (375mm), lighter (3.8kg, including the bracket), easier to install, safe to use on oil-covered water, suitable for a drop height of up to 60 meters, and its simple-to-replace individual LED bulbs. The MOB has individual LED light pods for quick installation and testing and a new retaining clip to prevent accidental deployment in rough seas. Its single-piece stainless steel bracket allows it to fit existing installations.
