Palfinger Marine has been chosen as the supplier for the replacement of six large lifeboat stations for the accommodation vessel Edda Fides.
"We have been working closely with Edda Accoommodation on this project and found the best technical solution for their needs. Edda Accommodation's request was to increase the lifeboat capacity as much as possible so that they are able to meet requirements from their customers worldwide," says Robin Holmedal Pedersen, Area Sales Manager LSE.

Palfinger Marine's scope of delivery consists of six large, totally enclosed lifeboats with accompanying davits. Each lifeboat has a capacity of 150 persons in standard SOLAS mode. The seating arrangement for Edda Fides lifeboats is specially designed and even goes beyond standard SOLAS regulations.

Palfinger Marine's scope of delivery:
  • 6 x LBT 1180 Tanker version
  • 6 x VIP24 FDES
In addition, Palfinger Marine secured a five-year service agreement for the equipment. Delivery is scheduled for September 2018.

"We are proud to win this contract in such a tough market environment. It proves that Edda Accommodationtrusts our equipment and expertise," says Trond Paulsen, Sales Director LSE.
