Life Cell wins international marine safety award

(LONDON) — Life Cell Marine Safety was recently awarded the 2019 Maritime Safety Award by The Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) for its product the Life Cell.

Founded in London in 1860, RINA is an internationally renowned professional institution whose members are involved at all levels in the design, construction, maintenance and operation of marine vessels and structures. Members of RINA are widely represented in industry, universities and colleges, and maritime organisations in over 90 countries.

The Maritime Safety Award, sponsored by the Institution and Lloyd’s Register, is presented to an individual, company or organization which has made a significant technological contribution to improving maritime safety or the protection of the maritime environment. Such contribution can have been made either by a specific activity or over a period of time.

Life Cell is a buoyant float-free device that can store all essential marine safety equipment and was designed by a survivor of a rapid sinking off the coast of Sydney, Australia. It is like combining a life buoy and a grab bag in one device, two items that have undergone little innovation in recent history.

Life Cell is currently being sold in Australia, United States, United Kingdom and Europe. The company has also starting working with aid organizations in developing countries, to help reduce the number of fisherman who lose their lives every year in drowning-related accidents.
