Maritime safety at scale​​​​​​​

Ever since the loss of the Titanic and the rise of the SOLAS convention, the cruise and ferry industry has taken center stage when it comes to developing the global standards and pioneering the technologies that make up the very core of safety at sea.

With some modern ships carrying over 8000 people and others travelling to the most remote and risky waters in the world, the scale and scope of safety solutions required has never been greater and VIKING is in a unique position to supply the full package.
