JULY 21, 2016 — Arendal, Norway, based lifeboat specialist Norsafe has secured a contract from Vard Group under which it will supply lifeboats complete with davit systems for the series of fifteen new vessels Vard is building for Topaz Energy and Marine (see earlier story).

The fifteen 123 m x 16.5 m Module Carrying Vessels (MCVs) will be built at three of Vard’s shipyards 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, which is also achieved through a low to the ground installation, which is ideal for placement on the narrow vessels.

Delivery is scheduled between January 2017 and June 2018.
