Norsafe expands services

Minima 88

Norwegian life-saving systems manufacturer Norsafe announced it has recently developed a modern, Partially Enclosed Lifeboat (PELB) providing a secure and protected means of escape for persons on-board passenger vessels.

The ‘Minima 88’ is a SOLAS compliant compact 8.8m long boat with a width of 4.25m for 150 persons.

With its signal coloured canopy, white hull and cool streamlined exterior, the design features a spacious cockpit in the middle, to provide efficient visibility during embarkation, with a good view for the helmsman. The forward visibility is also good and a roof hatch in the cockpit provides vertical visibility towards the davits during launching/retrieval.

In addition, the large side doors aid the fast and efficient embarkation of the crew. 

Norsafe has received an order from Xiamen Shipyard in China for a Finland based operator, Viking Line, for six Minima-88 lifeboats with compatible LHD-200 davits.

This new build ferry is due to come into service in 2021 on routes across the Baltic Sea between Turku, Finland and Stockholm, Sweden.
