Liferaft solutions for offshore assets

Protecting thousands of workers on all types of offshore rigs, platforms and vessels across the oil and gas industry, the VIKING liferaft is a true backbone technology in offshore safety.

VIKING has been manufacturing and servicing liferafts since 1960. Our wide range of throw-overboard and davit launchable liferafts are available in a standard version and an automatically self-righting version with the option for extended 30-month service intervals. VIKING also supplies all types of liferaft accessories such as cradles, hooks, racks and davits.

Offshore evacuation

Specifically for oil and gas rigs and platform applications, our liferafts are often used in combination with our chute-bases SES evacuation systems, which are available for all types of installations.
