Powered by a full scope of maritime safety solutions and holistic servicing concepts, VIKING Life-Saving Equipment has long proven its ability to convert proactive innovation to industry leading solutions that meet shipowner top priorities.

At SMM 2018 in Hamburg, will be the launching pad for a wide spectrum of developments, each one primed to support an industry facing the dual pressures of safety compliance and cost-efficiency.

Simplify safety with the original solution for shipowner safety management
The highly successful VIKING Shipowner Agreement concept is likely to attract the most attention. With a unique track record as the original holistic solution for global maritime safety management, sourcing and servicing, a VIKING Shipowner Agreement covers a fleet's safety compliance needs in a variety of predictable fixed-price structures. In addition, it can be easily and flexibly adapted to suit shipowners' needs and the operational environment, providing several advantages in the way of cost-efficiencies and significantly reducing administrative hassles. This allows the shipowner to maintain a high level of safety and regulatory compliance with minimal disruption to operations.

More efficient MES and crew training
Beyond Shipowner Agreements, visitors to the VIKING stand will find much more in the way of safety innovation. Already the global safety industry leader in Marine Evacuation Systems, VIKING has recently launched even more efficient systems, now including 24/7 onboard digitalized crew training and competency management for the best possible crew readiness.

VIKING YouSafe - uniting the industry leading range of PPE
Safer and smarter solutions for lifeboats, hooks and davits are also in this year's SMM line-up, along with an upgraded range of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) - now united under the global VIKING YouSafe brand.

Streamlined administration with online access
There's good news, too, for VIKING customers seeking to cut safety servicing administration by means of the latest technology. Introduced at SMM, VIKING ServiceConnect is a new, purpose-built digital service hub featuring an intuitive customer portal for direct service booking and global online 24/7 access to information about safety equipment servicing, notifications and much more.

Marine Fire Service on the move
Powered by a recent acquisition, VIKING is also delivering on its promise to further expand the company's marine fire servicing network around the world, with fixed pricing and boosting expertise and certification levels in all regions for a more consistent service offering.

Viking will be exhibiting at SMM, September 4th to 7th in Hamburg, Germany.
