Survitec’s revolutionary Seahaven, the world’s largest inflatable lifeboat, has been shortlisted in the safety technology category of this year’s Safety4Sea awards.
Seahaven launched in April and having received certification for completion of Lloyd’s Register Type Approval tests is redefining evacuation at sea with capacity to safely evacuate 1060 passengers in under 22 minutes.
Based on years of research, Seahaven revolutionises the way in which passengers and crew evacuate in an emergency. Seahaven also creates revenue generation opportunities for owners by freeing up to 85% of deck space.
Claude Sada, Managing Director, Survival Craft at Survitec, said: “We are delighted Seahaven has been shortlisted for this prestigious award so soon after its official market launch earlier this year. As a crucial Survival Technology solutions partner for many global organisations within the maritime industry, we know that it is essential to continue to push the boundaries and look for new, innovative ways to protect lives at sea and already the industry is recognising the important contribution Seahaven can make to cruise ship safety.”
The Safety4Sea Technology Award is presented to any organisation that provides a significant technological achievement or significant contribution to maritime safety following the outcome of a combination of open public voting and the decision of a panel of selected industry experts.
The winner will be announced during a special online event on October 19th with votes cast by the public counting towards 50% of the overall score. Online voting will remain open until Friday 2nd September 2022.
