VIKING has developed a cutting-edge evacuation system specifically designed for frozen waters and harsh arctic environments.

Severe winters can limit rescue operations and winter ice makes the use of free fall lifeboats impossible. VIKING has therefore modified its already proven offshore chute system to cope with the special conditions encountered when evacuating by chute directly onto a ship.



Under the name SES-2D, the SES-2C is available in a version without a compensating tower that only deploys to sea.
