Shell Orders from Survival Craft

Friday, October 31, 2008

Shell UK Ltd placed an order for two new 72 seat lifeboats from Survival Craft Inspectorate Ltd in Aberdeen. The lifeboats will replace two 56 seat lifeboats aboard the Anasuria FPSO operating in the North Sea. The new lifeboats will use the vessel’s existing davits but due to their design, will enable an increase in crew carrying capacity.

The two lifeboats will be fitted with Survival Craft’s patented Safelaunch on-load release hook mechanism. This was the first release hook specifically developed with safety innovations to eliminate the hazards that had resulted in frequent accidents to seafarers and offshore workers.

Survival Craft Inspectorate has headquarters in Aberdeen and facilities in Houston, Singapore and Stavanger.
