Lifeboat Capsule Benefits

With their specifically designed safety features, stable hook design and safer recovery from water, not only are SSI’s lifeboat capsules safer in emergency evacuations but are safer in training and maintenance.

Specifically Designed for Rigs & Platforms

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, platforms and FPSO's.

Single Cable Advantages

SSI'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 single cable.

Superior Hook Design

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.

Superior Structural Strength

The capsule has superior structural strength with its central core design, oval shape and use of fire retardant vinyl ester resin throughout.

Superior Maneuverability

The capsule’s oval shape allows for superior maneuverability in the water plus its beam to length ratio provides enhanced stability in rough seas.

Safer Recovery

A single point connection combined with enhanced helmsman visibility and superior manoeuvrability make the SSI capsule faster, safer and simpler to recover.
