Miko Marine AS has developed the Yacht Salvage Kit in association with Captain Nick Sloane, salvage master and member of the Lloyds Panel of Special Casualty Representatives.
Collisions, groundings, explosions and valve failures all have the potential of uncontrolled water ingress. Deploying the Yacht Salve Kit in such a situation, the right patch is selected from the kit and rapidly deployed over the damaged area. Particularly intended for use on super yachts and smaller vessels, the kit contains Miko Marine’s well proven Miko plaster technology for keeping water on the outside and oil on the inside.
The kit contains three FlexiShape Miko patches of different sizes, used for larger damages following groundings or collisions on all hull types. The FlexiShape Miko Plaster is lowered into the water and positioned over the damaged area by divers. The Miko Fix is applied to fix the Miko bolts trough the Aluminium Bars and secure the patch in place.
Also included in the kit, is the Miko Fix®. This is a compact and cordless underwater fastening system which is used for to fasten and secure the patches to the hull.
The Magnetic Miko Plaster® is used for leaks, cracks, sealing off pipe inlets, sea chest cover etc. With a weight in water of 6,2 kg, the Miko Plaster® can be easily handled by one diver. The patch is applied directly over the leak and can be simply re-positioned if necessary. The seal is achieved by the water pressure and magnetic adhesion between the patch and the steel surface. The MPM-002 Miko Permanent Magnets are placed on top of the patch to increase the seal and resistance to peeling that might be caused by towing or current speed.
The content is well protected in three IP 54 rated plastic containers, each with a weight of approximately 64 kg.
