Survival Craft Wins $7.7m Lifeboat Contract

Friday, August 20, 2010

Marine safety specialist Survival Craft Inspectorate Ltd has won offshore contracts potentially worth a total of $7.7m to supply new lifeboats that meet key upgrade requirements. Among Survival Craft’s clients are Apache, BP, Chevron, Maersk Oil and Marathon, which have all agreed supply contracts for the upgrading of their UK-located fixed installations.

The upgrades are in accordance with the companies’ obligations as duty holders, taking into account the Health and Safety Executive’s Big Persons in Lifeboats Guidance Information Sheet 12/2008 for offshore installations, published in December 2008.

The move has been prompted by the need for operators to comply with the Offshore Installations (Prevention of Fire and Explosion, and Emergency Response) Regulations by taking “adequate account of the current average weight and size of persons when determining the suitability of the lifeboats provided on offshore installations”.

Survival Craft managing director Angus Campbell said that contracts involve design, manufacture, installation, and commissioning, adding that the first upgraded lifeboats were now being delivered.
