Viking Life-Saving Equipment and E.R. Schiffahrt have teamed up to design a fully customized, global servicing arrangement based on Viking’s Shipowner Agreements. The contract covers liferafts, lifeboats, immersion suits, lifejackets and marine fire systems and equipment such as fire extinguishers on more than 30 vessels of the shipowner’s fleet. The plan is for Viking to manage not just service notifications, but also the coordination of all servicing. 

While lifeboats and marine fire equipment will be covered under a fixed-price servicing arrangement, E.R. Schiffahrt saw advantages in replacing other brand liferafts with VIKING products. Together with the immersion suits, these new liferafts will be serviced via fixed-price exchange, which sees products simply being swapped out as their certificates expire. Viking maintains a worldwide exchange pool for liferaft servicing at Viking-owned stations in 42 strategic ports. A number of new builds are also included in the tailored Shipowner Agreement.
