AMI-TMQ’s EEL Emergency Escape Light Nominated in the 2019 RAI METS Amsterdam DAME Awards
Press Release: Approved for immediate distribution
23rd October, 2019
Nominated within the Lifesaving and Safety Equipment category, the EEL Emergency Escape Light is a world first and unique product, a roll angle and water activated device that automatically illuminates upon detection of an abnormal roll angle (indicative of capsize) or immersion in water, and is impact proof to resist damage from falling objects.
In recent years numerous maritime tragedies have occurred within Australian waters where limited visibility and disorientation during and after capsize were critical factors, and the urgency to provide mariners with a bright light when it was most needed inspired the EEL’s design.
The EEL remains illuminated at maximum brightness for a minimum of 6+ hours once activated, is simple to install and virtually maintenance free, offering a two year battery life expectancy that can be easily renewed at an approved exchange centre. The patented product has numerous battery redundancies and will visually indicate when battery replacement is required.
