Marine and offshore safety equipment company VIKING Life-Saving Equipment will showcase a host of innovative safety solutions and servicing concepts, proving once again that the company is closely aligned with cruise line operator needs and priorities at Seatrade Cruise Global in Fort Lauderdale. VIKING has a strong trio of new products in store for shipowners and operators attending Seatrade Cruise Global. The flagship among these is the revolutionary VIKING LifeCraft hybrid evacuation and survival craft system. Currently undergoing a comprehensive full-scale test program, the official launch of this highly anticipated gamechanger is just around the corner. LifeCraft combines all the advantages of modern lifeboats, such as self-propelled maneuverability, with the flexibility, comfort and smaller footprint of liferafts. VIKING will also unveil its new VEC PlusTM evacuation solution, representing a complete design upgrade of existing high-capacity marine evacuation systems (MES) to boost long-term durability and vastly simplify maintenance. In addition to developments in marine evacuation systems, the brand new VIKING PV9522 SOLAS Lifejacket caters specifically to the needs of the cruise and ferry industry.
