    Unitor Detection Device Oversize

    WSS warns SOLAS regulation alone isn’t enough when it comes to gas detection

    Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) is warning ship operators they must combine vigilance, structure and care with the new SOLAS X1-1/7 - MSC.1/Circ.1477 & MSC.1/Circ.1485 regulations to safeguard crews from the dangers of gas when entering enclosed spaces. Just supplying vessels with one portable four-gas detection unit, as stipulated by the IMO, simply isn’t sufficient, stresses WSS.
