Leading survival technology provider, Survitec, has relaunched its lifeboat inspection solution underpinned by the company’s novel ‘Hub and Spoke’ network model.
Lifeboat Inspection 402, devised in line with regulations mandated in 2020 under SOLAS Chapter III & IMO MSC.402(96), has been enhanced to deliver greater flexibility and convenience to vessel operators.
Metkel Yohannes, Survitec’s Lifeboat Product Category Manager said: “We have significantly optimised our global lifeboat inspection solution to better reflect the operational needs of our customers and local dynamics.
In addition, our Lifeboat Inspection 402 solution includes further enhancements to its agreement options. For instance, as well as traditional spot market lifeboat inspections, Survitec offers more cost-effective frame or subscription-based agreements. Customers can benefit from lower costs, port priority and due-date management – all from a single point of contact.
Lifeboat inspections must be carried out annually, with a more extensive inspection and load testing taking place at five-year intervals. But, as Yohannes explained, waiting until the certificate’s expiry date to sort out an inspection is not the most efficient approach.
As a Flag State authorised multi-brand lifeboat inspection provider, Survitec teams are competent, capable and certified to deliver on all makes and types of lifeboats, davits, and hooks.
Hub ports currently include Singapore, Rotterdam, Fujairah, Shanghai, Doha, Barcelona, Miami, Busan, Aberdeen, Algeciras, and Piraeus. Over 60 Flag Administrations have now authorised Survitec’s Hub & Spoke lifeboat inspections.
Survitec encourages ship operators and managers to reach out with their lifeboat inspection requirements.
