Commissioning of Kevlacat rescue vessel for Marine Rescue Port Kembla

A new Kevlacat catamaran rescue vessel for Marine Rescue Port Kembla will be commissioned at 12.00 noon on Saturday 9 July 2011 at Port Kembla Port Corporation.

PK 20 is equipped with state-of-the-art Raymarine GPS, radar and FLIR night vision, Icom marine radio electronics, Class A Furuno AIS (Automatic Identification System) and advanced first aid equipment including cardiac defibrillator and oxygen therapy.

PK 20 will be stationed at Port Kembla on the NSW Illawarra Coast as part of a strategically located safety net of vessels covering the NSW coastline.

Guests attending the commissioning ceremony will include:
• Mr. Gareth Ward MP (Kiama) representing the Minister for Police & Emergency Services;
• Mr. James Glissan QC, Chairman of the Board, Marine Rescue NSW;
• Mr. Stacey Tannos ESM, Commissioner, Marine Rescue NSW;
• Mr. Peter Purnell Unit Commander, Marine Rescue Port Kembla;
• Members of Port Kembla Unit and representatives from other Marine Rescue units.
