The Danish lifeboat producer Xervo has introduced a new SOLAS version of its popular Boat-In-A-Box lifeboat system. The company has had great success with a NORSOK R-002 version of this state-of-the-art lifeboat and rescue boat system, which was developed in co-operation with the offshore industry.

It will be launched at the SMM conference in Hamburg on September 9.

Esben Juul Sørensen, Chief Executive, Xervo, said: ”We built the company around a clear safety philosophy, which is that a single safety breach must never lead to a dangerous situation.

“On that basis, we have had the luck and skill to develop a lifeboat system that we believe is the safest on the market. We won’t compromise that philosophy, but we can use our experience to create a system that meets the SOLAS standards and more.”

The SOLAS version of Boat-In-A-Box will receive its international premiere at the SMM convention. The system will be presented in co-operation with Fassmer, which has built the structural base that will lift the Boat-In-A-Box-system five meters above the floor so that all the system’s details can be experienced at close range.
