Sailing ships' safety devices from Craig & Derricott Young passengers on two special sailing ships will be kept safe and sound thanks to special alarm switches supplied by Walsall-based control specialist Craig & Derricott.

Safety and control systems on the the two ships, designed as training vessels in Greece and Holland, have been installed by Tyco Marine Services.

However, the essential 'man overboard' and 'abandon ship' switches have been supplied by Craig & Derricott, based in Hall Lane, Walsall Wood.

Engineering director Andy Dolman said: 'The ships have the usual safety and control panel on board, but they are steered from an open bridge, some ten or 12 paces aft and up a deck.

'There were two vital controls needed there - abandon ship and man overboard. These were in an extremely exposed position, with salt and water the major problems.'

But Craig & Derricott managed to overcome the problem, providing the additional safety needed for the systems. Mowlem name change Construction group John Mowlem has changed its name to Mowlem, and, at the same time, the majority of its operating companies will take the Mowlem name, which many of them currently do not carry.
