Norsafe secures its largest ever offshore LSA contract
Norsafe has secured its largest ever offshore contract to supply lifesaving appliances to ENI’s Coral South floating LNG (FLNG) facility located in Area 4, approximately 50 km from the Mozambique coast.
The order is to deliver 8 freefall systems containing 5 x GES 50 MKIII with HD-50 davits and 3 x GES 45 with HD-45 davits, to the FLNG facility under construction by Samsung Heavy Industries. The davits will be delivered in November 2018 and the lifeboats in February 2021.
The GES 50 MKIII freefall lifeboat will take up to 70 persons and can drop from a height of 47 metres with the GES 45 taking up to 60 persons, having a maximum drop height of 40 metres.
This represents a significant milestone for Norsafe and, combined with other large orders secured recently, means that the company has booked more than 100 million NOK in July; an outstanding achievement given the current market situation.
“I am delighted that Norsafe has secured such a prestigious contract to supply the first FLNG facility in Africa. It is testament to the dedication and hard work of our global teams that we have managed to secure so much business this year,” said Dag Songedal, CEO for Norsafe.
“We will continue to listen to our clients and develop products and services to meet their requirements in a cost-effective way,” he added.
