Zephyr has delivered its 66th Rescue Hoist Ground Support System powered by electro‐hydraulics to the Icelandic Coast Guard. The Icelandic Coast Guard operates two Super Pumas with a combination of Goodrich hydraulic hoists and a Breeze‐Eastern high speed electric hoist and a 300 lbs electric hoist. The Zephyr rescue hoist ground support equipment can service all of the hoists the Icelandic Coast Guard uses.

The significance of Rescue Hoist Users in the countries of USA, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, the Netherlands, Germany, France and Spain in the Northern Hemisphere and New Zealand, Australia and Hong Kong in the Southern Hemisphere all using the Zephyr Ground Support Systems is a testament to the value provided by the use of the Zephyr Rescue Hoist Ground Support Equipment to tension, clean, dry , lubricate and inspect the cable in order to keep the hoist and cable in good condition in a maritime environment while adding significant value by reducing costs at the same time. With the rising costs of fuel, maintenance, blade time and manpower the Zephyr Rescue Hoist Ground Support equipment pays for itself quickly and pays the Rescue Organization back in the long run with extensive cost savings while eliminating unscheduled repairs due to ground handling damage of the rescue hoist cable and/ or the rescue hoist itself.

To date Zephyr has delivered over 160 of the Rescue Hoist Ground Support System in the manually powered and Electro‐hydraulic powered configurations worldwide. The Zephyr Ground Support Systems work with any helicopter and rescue hoist in use in the world today.
