HPL-2 Personal Locator Beacon (PLB)
Previous tracking transmitters used by offshore oil workers have only transmitted signals on the 121.5 MHz (VHF) emergency wave band that only rescue helicopters and rescue boats could pick up. But now we have developed a transmitter that also utilizes the AIS network with GPS positioning. AIS signals are captured on AIS receivers aboard all modern helicopters and ships. Our system utilizes satellite networks as from both the US (GPS) and Russia (Glonass). The Glonass network better covers the Earth's northern hemisphere, ensuring precise positioning in, for example, the Barents Sea.
HPL-2 Emergency Transmitter must be mounted in HPL Antenna Module. HPL Antenna Module is integrated into Hansen Protection's SeaAir suits.
From one of the world's foremost developers and manufacturers of survival equipment
Hansen Protection has been a pioneer in safety at sea since we launched kapok lifejackets in 1932.
Our current range continues the company's strong traditions, where our greatest concern is to ensure optimal functionality and performance for all types of work at sea.
A first class survival suit can mean the difference between life and death.
As one of the world's foremost developers and manufacturers of survival equipment, Hansen Protection can offer a wide collection of survival suits. Survival can never be guaranteed, but we can guarantee that our survival suits satisfy the highest demands for safety.
Survival suits are obligatory for personnel on oil rigs, passenger ferries, merchant and fishing fleets plus in offshore helicopter transport.
Our dry suits provide sufficient buoyancy and protect against heat loss, and thus increase the survival time in cold water. All suits are tested and approved according to the strictest national and international standards.
