Davits for free-fall lifeboat systems
VIKING Norsafe free-fall davits provide rapid evacuation using a skid launch - guaranteeing that lifeboats enter the water well away from the ship or offshore installation. And the hydraulic winch systems streamline lifeboat launch and recovery.
The free-fall davits are manufactured in-house at VIKING Norsafe facilities and designed to suit the full range of our VIKING Norsafe free-fall lifeboats. Take a closer look at the range and don't hesitate to contact us, if you have any questions.
