The Extreme Side of the Marine Industry
Of all industries, one which undeniably faces the most extreme conditions, and consequently necessitates the use of only the toughest equipment, is the marine industry.
Equipment on marine vessels can be at sea for long periods of time in very low temperatures, constantly exposed to a whole host of extreme weather conditions. What’s more, due to the crucial nature of many roles within the industry, new and innovative marine technology is constantly being developed to ensure these can be fulfilled as effectively as possible. To ensure this technology can perform under such critical conditions, certain measures have to be taken.
