TST Sweden is the proud supplier of Cooling Vests to help staff working in Operation Triton to withstand heat exposure and avoid Heat Stress (hyperthermia).
Swedish Coast Guard vessel KBV001 Poseidon currently operates in the Mediterranean, between Italy and Libya. It is staffed by personnel from the Coast Guard and the Police and perform search and rescue missions. So far, more than 4,000 fleeing migrants have been rescued!
Poseidon is normally staffed by 12-15 people, and at this type of mission is both heat and stress significant. Staff need all the support they can get, in the form of smart equipment. TST Cooling Vest is a good example. It helps staff maintain a reasonable body temperature and reduce body fluid losses that reduce performance.
