Restech Norway started manufacturing pneumatic line throwers, PLT, in 1989. Since then, the product portfolio has been increased and consist now of PLT Solas, PLT Multi, PLT Mini and PLT Concepts. The PLT Solas and Multi was recently found to be the best available technology for emergency towline deployment by Glosten through a sea trial. The technical quality was categorized as superior to similar systems on the market. One of the benefits is that there is no expiry date for the units, hence it’s a long-term investment saving cost as well as the environment from unnecessary waste and use of resources. The PLT Complies with subchapter M for tugs and is USCG approved, and DOT approved. It also holds a MED B, MED D and type approval certificate for international operations. Restech has a global presence through dealers.
