Porto Itapoá builds emergency cage for rescue

Porto Itapoá has developed a new rescue cage solution for emergency situations.

Faced with a lack of such equipment on the national market, the Porto Itapoá team reportedly decided to take the initiative and design a cage that would fulfil the unique requirements of port operations.

The cage will be used for rescues in critical situations, according to Porto Itapoá’s Director of Operations, Technology, and Environment, Sergni Pessoa Rosa Jr.

“The existing offer of this type of equipment in Europe did not meet our specific needs, which prompted our team to develop the necessary solution internally,” Pessoa Rosa explained.

According to the Porto Itapoá, the equipment distinguishes out due to its four doors, which provide rescue teams quick access. This function has been carefully designed to optimise rescue operations in emergency situations, assuring efficiency and a quick response.

In addition, the equipment will have a system for lifting and assigning probable accident victims, allowing for speedier manoeuvres and rescues, particularly in maritime scenarios.

Pessoa Rosa added: “It is a significant addition to our operation, but one that we hope to never use. Attentive listening and the integration of feedback were essential to ensure that the equipment met the real demands of rescue in the port environment as accurately as possible.”

In October 2023, Porto Itapoá welcomed a new shipping route, Brazil Express (BRAZEX), from the French shipping company CMA CGM.

More recently, the port launched the Carbon Neutralization Project in partnership with the Ambipar Group to offset carbon emissions from customers.
