Norsafe's advanced technology GES50 MKIII free-fall lifeboat

Norsafe opened a new service station in Perth, Australia. This offers their customers better access to service, maintenance, spare parts and training for lifesaving systems in the region.

The new establishment will strengthen after sales services and the supply of spare parts for Norsafe products in the Australasia region, with staff and facilities now located closer to existing and prospective clients. The new service office also has a 350m² workshop for refurbishment and repair of lifeboats and is fully supported by the nearest Singapore service station.

Perth, Western Australia is the center for the Australian offshore oil and gas industry. Ships are constantly passing through the busy ports of Fremantle, Kwinana, Dampier and Karratha. The navy and customs vessels also frequent this service area. This strategic location is the base for Norsafe’s Australian operations, and a flying squad of service engineers can reach other parts of Australia as needed.

Norsafe has recently delivered several free fall lifeboat systems type GES50 Mk III, many of which will be in operation in the North West gas field of Australia. The company expects significant growth to occur in this booming Australian market in the future.

Norsafe Service stations are located in Mexico, U.S., Brazil, The Netherlands, Greece, Korea, Japan, China, Singapore, Australia and Norway. In addition, Norsafe has 30 authorized service partners worldwide.
