丹麦Viking公司发布新型救生筏系统

来源:国际海员服务中心网 2013-11-13 03:25:36 责任编辑: 人气:

海洋和消防安全设备领导者VIKING Life-Saving Equipment 公司于2013年10月在全球发布了最新创新的VIKINGLifeCraft™ (救生筏)系统。

2009年,受到救生筏工作组研讨会讨论的启发,VIKING公司的研发组询问自己这样一个尖锐而激动人心的问题:是否有可能建造一艘融合所有现代救生筏优点的救生筏,例如自力推进的机动性——具有现代救生筏的灵活性、舒适性和更小的空间?并且这样的救生梯能都保证快速大规模疏散,同时保证乘客和船员最大的安全?回答这些问题的挑战开启了一个雄心壮志、长达4年的历程,最终取得惊人的成果:VIKING LifeCraft™ 系统。

LifeCraft™ 系统由两部分构成:LifeCraft™ 自身——一艘有4个发动机的自力推进充气式船只,机动性和安全性很高;以及一个存放和启动装置,放置在甲板上或建造在甲板里,总共有4个LifeCraft™ 装置,每个可以容纳200人,共可以容纳800人。

 VIKING公司副总裁Niels Fraende说这是一个彻底改变救生梯和救生筏讨论的产品——至少讨论到高容量的疏散系统时。“今天更大更宽的船只意味着遇险情况下乘客数量会显得很多、吃水差高度的变化以及倾斜角度会显得很大”,Niels Fraende说。

“而LifeCraft™ 系统是一个高度灵活的疏散系统,可以应对这一极端条件”。

这一混合解决方案还有很多好处,例如,新的LifeCraft™ 系统在完全的新水平上也是安全的。一个特殊设计的滑道系统帮助特殊需要的人群疏散,例如儿童、老人和担架上的人,为全方位的海上疏散设立了新标准。

登上船东圈报纸头条的还不只是新的LifeCraft™ 系统的救生功能,此外这一系统占用的空间比救生筏的小、为那些希望为乘客提供更多舱室、购物机会和其他旅行功能的船东释放出了更多甲板空间。

Denmark: Viking Reveals Innovative LifeCraft System

Marine and fire safety equipment leader VIKING Life-Saving Equipment launched its latest innovation, the VIKING LifeCraft™ system, globally in October 2013.

In 2009, inspired by discussions during sessions of the Safecraft Working Group, VIKING’s development teams asked themselves a tough but exciting question: What if it were possible to build a lifesaving craft that combined all of the advantages of modern lifeboats – such as self-propelled maneuverability – with the flexibility, comfort and smaller footprint of today’s liferafts?

And what if such a craft could enable rapid, mass evacuation with maximum safety for passengers and crew? The challenge of answering these questions was the spark that set off an ambitious, four-year long journey to reach an amazing result: The VIKING LifeCraft™ System.

The LifeCraft™ System consists of two main elements: The LifeCraft™ itself – a self-propelled inflatable vessel with four engines for a high degree of maneuverability and safety; and a storing and launching unit, either placed on deck or built in, containing up to four LifeCraft™ units with a capacity of 200 persons each – for a total capacity of 800 persons.

According to VIKING vice president Niels Fraende, this is a product that completely changes the lifeboat vs. liferaft discussion – at least when it comes to high-capacity evacuation systems. “Today’s larger and wider vessels mean that the number of passengers and the variation in trim height and list conditions can be enormous in a distress situation,” says Fraende. “The LifeCraft™ is a hugely flexible evacuation system that can cope with such extremes.”

There are more advantages of this hybrid solution. For example, the new LifeCraft™ System is safe on an entirely new level, too. A specially designed chute system helps evacuees with special needs, such as children, the elderly and those on stretchers, setting a new standard for full-spectrum marine evacuation.

And it’s not just the life-saving capabilities of the new LifeCraft™ System that are hitting the headlines in shipowner circles. The system also takes up less room than lifeboats, freeing up deck space for shipowners keen to provide their passengers with more cabins, shopping opportunities and other journey enhancements.
