Norsafe informs it has signed a new contract with VARD Group, and will supply lifeboats complete with davit systems to a series of 15 new vessels.
Topaz Energy and Marine has appointed shipbuilder VARD Group
to construct 15 Module Carrying Vessels (MCVs), each measuring 123 meters long by 16.5 meters wide. The MCVs will be built at three of VARD’s sites in Vietnam and Romania
. Norsafe will deliver two JYN 57 conventional lifeboats with LHD-60 davit systems to each vessel.
The unique design of Norsafe’s LHD-60 davits offers stability, and this is also achieved through a low to the ground installation, which is ideal for placement on the narrow vessels, according to the manufacturer. Delivery is scheduled between January 2017 and June 2018.
