VIKING VENOC is specially designed for ship-shaped offshore installations, the VENOC evacuation system is installed on the open deck or between decks. With a minimal deck footprint and a less stressful evacuation process, the VENOC offers a safe and cost-efficient alternative to conventional on board survival craft solutions.


Upon the pull a few levers, a hydraulic arrangement tilts the evacuation system into position for deployment. The main self-righting liferaft is connected to the buoyancy device and inflates.

Automatically at sea level – making it simple to board. No bowsing lines or welded connection points on the vessel’s side are necessary.
