Nadiro lifeboat launch gets type approval

Offshore staff

SVENDBORG, Denmark Viking Nadiro has received DNV GL type approvals for a Solas lifeboat release system and bracket type.

Nadiro’s DIB 75, currently under development, is aimed at medium-sized crafts, and will be ready for commercial release in January.

For larger lifeboats, the soon-to-be-released DIB 125 is in process to attain DNV approval. The DIB 125 is expected to be both DNV and USCG-approved, and ready to go to market by mid-November this year.

All three products will also be available in a single-point version, requiring one instead of the conventional two sets of hooks, and enabling them to be used, for example, for rapid deployment rescue crafts, the company said.
