Survitec Group Goes Global by Adding Extra Engineers to Lifeboat Servicing Programme

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

Safety solutions provider Survitec is transforming its lifeboat services operation into a fully global offering with the addition of 14 extra engineers across a range of sites worldwide.

Customers ordering lifeboat services – along with all their other needs such as life rafts – can now enquire with their local branch, then have services delivered wherever they need globally.

The overhaul means it will now have engineers on the ground in five continents, supported by flying squads in the main global ports. Survitec previously sent engineers from the UK and Scandinavia round the world to conduct inspections, but the enhanced service will be quicker and more cost-effective for customers, as well being able to be booked locally.
Its existing team of more than 100 service engineers can already attend any location worldwide, but adding more operatives in additional locations will further improve the service for marine and offshore customers.

The enhanced proposition will be co-ordinated through one point of contact as opposed to multiple sites; reducing the administrative load for the customer. By providing services for all lifeboat brands and types, complexity is also reduced for users.

In addition to compliance with SOLAS regulations and conforming to the IMO (International Maritime Organisation) requirements, Survitec offers multi-brand inspection capabilities approved under Class and Flag.

Survitec carries Class approval – including DNV GL, Lloyds and ABS among others – and many Flag approvals including Panama, Malta, Norway and Liberia.

Survitec also has a renowned and well-developed re-hooking service, in line with the latest relevant IMO standards.

Paul Watkins, Regulatory & Compliance Manager at Survitec Group, said:

“We have always offered a global proposition, but these expansion plans give us an even larger footprint, which in turn offers operators greater peace of mind that we can reach them wherever they sail. Our cross-trained service agents can help companies improve their operational efficiency, not only saving them time and money, but also ensuring their statutory obligations are met. Customers can contact their local branch and the services can then be delivered wherever their ship is going to be globally.
“Our commitment to compliance and our position as a standard bearer for class approvals means that rather than reacting to regulatory changes, we are influential in helping to develop them. This expertise not only qualifies us to service any brand of life-saving appliance, but also means we can help companies no matter what their fleet requirements are.”

Survitec PCS Aims to Significantly Reduce Preventable Battlefield deaths

Norwegian Defence Material Agency signs up to $18m framework contract

Safety solution provider Survitec has launched a pre-hospital care system (PCS) – delivered by the Survitec Med division – that when effectively deployed will dramatically reduce preventable battlefield deaths, by providing world-leading pre-hospital medical equipment packaged ready for field use.

In line with the Norwegian Defence requirement, the PCS adheres to Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC); a battlefield medical doctrine that optimises the interventions and equipment required to reduce preventable battlefield deaths to a minimum.

Around 90% of battlefield deaths occur before reaching definitive medical care1. By employing Survitec’s PCS solutions, combined with the implementation of TCCC guidelines, battlefield personnel can be equipped with the latest and most innovative pre-hospital solutions available today.

Survitec’s PCS equips the user with the tools and training they need to rapidly assess, treat and extract casualties at all stages of the TCCC process; including Care Under Fire, Tactical Field Care and Tactical Evacuation situations. It consists of four components to include high-quality equipment, tactical and emergency pre-hospital training, end-to-end expert support and a global servicing and restock network, ensuring all stages of global battlefield care are delivered seamlessly.

The Norwegian Defence Material Agency (NDMA) has awarded the framework agreement to Sweden-based Promoteq AB, with Survitec as subcontractor, acting as the System Integrator. This is the first large-scale operation of its kind and is valued at $18m for three years – with an option to extend further – meaning the Norwegian Defence will be supported by the cutting edge of battlefield care into the next decade. Survitec’s partner Promoteq is a security and government contractor with more than 10 years of experience of providing Medical state of the art products and training to the Scandinavian market.

Survitec will be officially unveiling the system at DSEI at London’s ExCel, which runs between September 12th and 15th.

Rune Jensen, Chief of Project Department in the General Material Division, NDMA says: “So far the NDMA has a good experience with Promoteq as a System Integrator and Survitec as a subcontractor. We are looking forward to testing a System Integration of this scale and have very high expectations to further cooperation and their future deliveries.”

Survitec Med is staffed and managed by a team full of military experience, informed by years of real world combat deployments and by active, qualified civilian paramedics to provide the best solutions to all tactical field users.

Kevin Wheeler, Medical Director of Survitec, said: “This is a complete end-to-end solution and the only offering of its kind that combines modular designs, tactical medical training, expert support and servicing, anywhere in the world. In simple terms, it is a system that will significantly increase survivability – it will save lives. It not only equips military personnel with the tools they need to care for their comrades, but also provides the training they need to execute any support and care efficiently and quickly. We are proud to be supplying the system to the Norwegian Armed Forces and we hope that other militaries follow suit to ensure their troops are equipped with the latest and most innovative pre-hospital care medical solutions available today.”

Created by Survitec with support from Promoteq, the PCS is delivered with the close involvement of over 40 leading medical companies. Survitec supplies world leading equipment, with each component uniquely packed into a suite of modules optimised for the relevant phase of care, be it under fire, in-field or tactical evacuation.

Survitec’s mission is to provide innovative medical systems that deliver the right equipment to project forward the highest level of care in harsh environments.

The PCS supports extraction, field care, mobility, casualty sustainment and mass casualty events while meeting all required industry standards.
