Supporting Rescue Efforts:East China Sea


On January 7, 2018, a burning oil tanker sunk in the East China Sea after colliding with a freight vessel, hindering rescue efforts due to the presence of highly toxic gases. Thermo Fisher Scientific stepped forward with instrumentation and personnel to aid the rescue effort. Our Leak Detection and Repair Service Engineer deployed 12 Thermo Scientific TVA2020 Vapor Analyzers together with the rescue team to monitor toxic vapors, including extremely high levels of sulfur content, 20 to 30 meters from the scene. The information collected by the analyzers helped rescue teams keep a safe distance from the most dangerous spots while firefighters attempted to put out the flames. Our vapor analyzer simultaneously uses flame and photo ionization detection technologies due to their rapid response and strong repeatability. It is designed to provide comprehensive gas coverage for environmental monitoring in the field and at the scene of an accident. Thermo Fisher is committed to developing fast and efficient instruments that can be used in times of crisis, reflecting our mission of enabling our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer.
