Norsafe Highlights Safety at Kormarine

The company, which specialises in the design, manufacture and servicing of lifeboats, rescue boats and davits, will use this important exhibition to launch two new lifeboats targeting the merchant shipping and offshore markets.

GES 21

The GES 21, is a free fall lifeboat especially designed for ships. With a maximum drop height of 21 metres and a capacity of 26 people, it is an affordable alternative to other freefall lifeboats in the same class with a davit specially designed to take up less deck space than other comparable models.
