While performing the feat, Gianluca Genoni tested new equipment for divers. He used the fastest underwater scooter in the world that allows to reach a speed of about 100 meters per minute. He also tested an inflatable life-jacket prototype developed to instantly bring the diver back to the surface if any problem appears.
