VIKING systems are compact and discreet, requiring minimum deck space
Chute systems are specially designed to maximise deck space and sea view during storage. The VEC can be installed anywhere on board; on open deck, between decks in an open recess or built into the ship's side. Additional liferafts can be stored in remote locations and released by pump at the evacuation point. The compact nature allows for fast and easy removal for servicing.
SOLAS requirements are minimum standards for VIKING
VIKING systems are tried and tested for capacity and stability in conditions at least matching, but often well above, those required for certification.
