Always compliant, always onboard
Survitec RaftXChange rental liferafts are type and class approved, certificated and ready to use. The Survitec teams around the world work hard to ensure your liferafts are ready when and where they need to be. Survitec liferaft technicians will be waiting at your port with your replacement liferafts when you need, ready to go. All liferafts within the Survitec RaftXChange rental pool meet & exceed to the latest international class, quality and safety standards as per SOLAS 74, as amended, and the relevant resolutions and circulars of the IMO, as applicable including the LSA Code. This includes type approval requirements SOLAS 74 Reg. III/4, SOLAS 74 Reg. X/3 and tested to IMO Res.MSC.81(70), as amended. And for extended service intervals: IMO MSC.1/Circ.1328.
When choosing a RaftXChange+ contract with Survitec you are able to significantly improve your operational efficiencies. The novel design allows you to increase your liferaft service intervals from every 12 months to 30 months, that means you only have to complete a liferaft exchange once every five years! Directly resulting in less handling, less time spent in port and ultimately, cost efficiencies for your business.
Remaining compliant is critical, but with this extended service solution the need to facilitate a full service, which includes the transportation of your liferaft off and onto your vessel, is no longer required as regularly as traditional liferaft solutions. This is achieved by storing the liferaft within a hermetically sealed foil bag, providing maximum protection against the elements. Additionally, the liferaft includes a humidity and CO2 sensor, allowing for crew members to carry out their own, hassle free inspection regularly to ensure total working efficiency. Crew training is also provided to support your teams in carrying out your inspections onboard as required. Saving you not only time and money, RaftXChange+ means reduced frequency of moving your liferaft on and off your vessel, resulting in reduced risk of damage being caused, either through transportation or over-handling. Ideally designed for operators who have short and infrequent port calls.
