A revolutionary lifeboat system that enables mass evacuation with maximum safety for passengers and crew

Kloster Rescue Systems is the only marine evacuation solution that ensures the safety of passengers and crew in polar waters.

A safe way to evacuate

The evacuation room is located inside the ship, on one of the lower decks. Passengers board the lifeboat from both sides of the room through wide falcon-wing doors which are mounted along the entire side of the lifeboat. Securely seated inside the lifeboat, passengers will prepare for a possible launch. Being briefed when they came onboard the ship, the passengers will know that the evacuation may still be aborted by the captain depending on the situation.

Optimal for Ships that are Sailing in Polar Waters

Kloster Rescue Systems can be mounted across the beam, in the stern, or as a combination, depending on the size and configuration of the ship. The lifeboats that are launched from the stern are optimal for ships that are sailing in polar waters. Additionally, these lifeboats can be mounted with inflateable liferafts. The liferafts are designed to pick person up from the water and facilitate safe helicopter evacuation.

On March 23, 2019, the "Viking Sky" was only a few meters away from hitting rocks on the Norwegian coast. Had the ship not, miraculously, regained its engine power, hundreds of passengers and crew would more than likely have been killed and washed up on the shores of Hustadvika.

The ship's lifeboats were useless due to the harsh conditions. Although heroic, it took the team of helicopter rescuers 11 and a half hours to evacuate 192 out of 915 passengers. With Kloster Rescue Systems on board, all 915 passengers and the majority of the crew could have been evacuated in less than one hour.

How it works

Alarm Signal

As soon as the captain identifies a potentially dangerous situation, he or she can sound the general alarm, notifying the crew and passengers to evacuate to the lifeboats.

Mustering

Upon hearing the alarm, the passengers will move towards the evacuation rooms, located at the aft of the ship on one of the lower decks.

Muster Stations

In the evacuation room, passengers will be handed out life wests by the crew before continuing down one of the four staircases to the lifeboat room.

Boarding

Passengers board the lifeboat from both sides of the room through wide falcon-wing doors which are mounted along the entire side of the lifeboat.

Ready to Launch

Securely seated inside the lifeboat, passengers will prepare for a possible launch.

Being briefed when they came onboard the ship, the passengers will know that the evacuation may still be aborted by the captain depending on the situation.

Launch

As soon as the first lifeboat is filled up with passengers, and if the captain decides that the ship needs to be abandoned, he will order the lifeboat to be launched.

The captain decides whether to launch the lifeboat from the starboard or port side, depending on the conditions.

Towards Safe Waters

Once in the water, the pilot will navigate the lifeboat vessel away from its mother ship and the surrounding danger.

Liferafts

Lifeboats that are deployed in the aft can be fitted with Kloster Rescue Systems' liferafts. The liferafts can be used to pick up persons from the water, if needed.

Helicopter Rescue

The liferafts are designed to accommodate helicopter rescue. Persons that are in need of evacuation can easily be airlifted from the liferaft.

Features

Multidirectional Launch

Kloster Rescue Systems can be mounted across the beam, in the stern, or as a combination, depending on the size and configuration of the ship. The transverse lifeboats can be launched to both sides.

Easy Access

Through large falcon wing doors on both sides of the lifeboat, Kloster Rescue Systems makes it easy for passengers with special needs, such as children, the elderly, people with reduced mobility, and those on stretchers to evacuate, thus setting a completely new standard for full-spectrum marine evacuation.

Comfort and Technology

Kloster Rescue Systems lifeboats are designed to house passengers for a minimum of 5 days, in accordance with the IMO Polar Code regulations. Depending on the owner's choice, the lifeboats may be fitted with the latest in information technology and comfort, ensuring that the health and well-being of the passengers are taken care of.

Liferafts

Kloster Liferafts are mounted in the stern of the Model Y lifeboat and can be deployed when needed. The liferafts are designed to pick persons up from the water and to facilitate helicopter evacuation.

Advantages

Traditional lifeboats takes up a tremendous amount of valuable space along the ship sides. Being a built-in evacuation system, Kloster Rescue Systems frees up deck space that ship owners can use to provide their passengers with more high-income, sea-view cabin space.
