SRC maintain an ‘expeditionary’ capability with seven twenty foot shipping containers fitted out as workshop, office, crew room and general storage to enable deployment anywhere in Europe for major events. A bunded trailer mounted fuel bowser guarantees fuel for the boats and 5VKA Honda generators provide independent power.
