SSI specialise in the design, manufacture and world-wide delivery of lifeboat capsule systems.
The SSI Capsule is the only lifeboat designed specifically for the offshore oil worker’s use and safety; it is not an adapted ship’s lifeboat that has been designed for seamen. Single cable capsules do not go on ships, they are specifically designed for, and used by, offshore rigs and platforms.
Survival Systems International’s Capsules utilise a single cable for raising and lowering due to the significant safety advantages that it offers. The fundamental function of raising and lowering a weight is easier, more logical and safer using a single point and a single cable.
SSI’s hook is a stable design where the weight of the boat holds the hook closed when under load.
What does this mean? When the lifeboat is in the air, the SSI hook inherently wants to stay closed unlike other hook designs that want to open. This makes the SSI hook a much safer solution.
The capsule has superior structural strength with its central core design, oval shape and use of fire retardant vinyl ester resin throughout.
The capsule’s oval shape allows for superior maneuverability in the water plus its beam to length ratio provides enhanced stability in rough seas.
Single point connection combined, enhanced helmsman visibility and superior manoeuvrability combine to make the SSI capsules faster, safer and simpler to recover.
