Mitsui O.S.K Lines trials cooling worksuits to reduce cases of heatstroke

Dry Bulk,

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) has begun the trial of specialised cooling worksuits for crewmembers, developed by Teijin Ltd, in cooperation with MOL, on a vessel operated and managed by its subsidiary, Mitsui O.S.K. Kinkai, Ltd.

According to MOL, the goal of the trial is to prevent crewmembers suffering from heatstroke and to reduce their workload. The work uniforms are equipped with rechargeable cooling fans for those working under intense heat on a Mitsui O.S.K. Kinkai's cargo vessel in service between Japan and Middle East.

The fans draw in outside air and circulate it between the two layers of the uniform, which covers both the front and back of the body. The air flows evenly throughout the uniform, providing a significant cooling effect that enhances the crewmembers' comfort and increases their work efficiency.
