Viking Life-Saving Equipment said it will take advantage of Nor-Shipping 2013 to help shipowners make safety equipment and servicing a smooth and problem-free experience.
 


Optimizing in-port efficiency
Having revolutionized the safety equipment servicing world with far-reaching, customizable agreements that have reduced unpredictable, fluctuating costs, Viking is now focusing its attention on further fine-tuning its workflows and providing even faster response times fromservicing under the company’s highly popular Shipowner Agreements.



Viking Shipowner Agreements incorporate safety products, global servicing, single-source management and financing in a variety of fixed price structures, servicing liferafts, immersion suits and lifejackets, lifeboats, release hooks and davits and marine firefighting equipment. The concept’s flexibility is coupled with servicing and exchange options.



The Viking stand at Nor-Shipping 2013 will provide more than a showcase for products like its offshore wind suits, work suits, design-your-own inflatable SOLAS lifejackets and Viking’s lifeboat hook retrofitting services. It will also form a discussion platform for shipowners interested in fixed price coverage and flexibility offered by Viking Shipowner Agreements as well as minimizing the time and effort it takes to service their safety equipment in port.



“With the costs and difficulties of port delays receiving growing focus in the shipping industry, we’re putting a lot of effort into ensuring that our shipowner customers can avoid unnecessary waiting, administrative frustrations, or unforeseen expenditure,” CEO Henrik Uhd Christensen says. “Our Shipowner Agreements have been providing this level of service for some years now, but we’re always ready to deal with new situations such as the impact of hook retrofit compliance, aiming to achieve the bare minimum of disruption to shipping schedules.”
 

Products to be showcased at Nor-Shipping 2013

designed exclusively for the offshore wind industry

The offshore wind farm work suit incorporates a waterproof, highly durable and breathable GORE-TEX® Pazifik™ outer fabric with a comfortable high-performing thermal lining


Constant wear immersion/anti-exposure suit

Also showcased is the PS4170 constant wear immersion/anti-exposure suit, which stands today as the most advanced suit for workers in challenging industries.

As a global service operator, and both a Nadiro and Hatecke partner, VIKING offers certified LRRS servicing worldwide.
