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.
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.
VIKING liferafts are subjected to rough sea trials, wind velocity tests at forces of 30 meters per second and tested for deployment at extremely low temperatures.
Our global service setup caters to all your servicing needs from a single point of contact. At our certified stations covering all key maritime locations, experienced technicians follows strict guidelines for high-quality service using first-class tools and spare parts.
At VIKING, we are proud to call ourselves liferaft experts - and we are happy to share our knowledge with you.
