VIKING retrofit service Nadiro

With VIKING Nadiro Drop-In-Ball™ technology                   

Lifeboat Release hook systems are the focus of the IMO's MsC.1/Circ. 1392 circular that calls for major and mandatory improvements to safeguard lives both in genuine evacuation emergencies and during lifeboat drills at sea. This regulatory driven opportunity has a deadline for implementation no later than July 2019. Systems found to be non-compliant must be replaced or modified.
