In addition to the recently announced contract with Kværner for delivery of three of Norsafe’s largest freefall lifeboats with davit systems to the Njord A platform, Norsafe has won several other significant contracts, both for new builds and upgrade projects.
Among the largest contracts are:
- Replacement of lifeboats on the BP Ula platform
