This High Capacity Ship Evacuation System Can Rescue Up To 800 People

This high capacity ship evacuation system can rescue up to 800 people.

The rescue system is developed by Viking Life-Saving Equipment in Denmark and includes 4 EscapeWay chutes that can evacuate over 800 people altogether in 30 minutes.



At the bottom of the chutes are 4 self-propelled inflatable survival boats called LifeCraft with a capacity of 200 people each, however, it has built-in redundancy to exceed capacity.

The high capacity evacuation solution takes up less room than lifeboats, freeing up deck space.­ The storing and launching unit can be placed on the deck or built into the ship’s side.

The vessels have 4 engines for a high degree of manoeuvrability and include an easy seating arrangement­. They can be deployed with minimum handling and require minimum maintenance.
