Survitec works on demand for EEBDs

17 Feb 2017

Survitec Group is working with Ocenco to meet the demand for replacement Emergency Escape Breathing Devices (EEBDs).

EEBDs have been a requirement on vessels since SOLAS
regulation in 2002 and the 15-year service life on the first wave of products
will expire this year. Therefore, Survitec has urged the industry to make sure
EEBDs on vessels are up to date.

Frank Moffatt, Survitec's chief procurement officer, said: “Survitec
are the logical choice to distribute Ocenco products and replace the many
M-20.2 EEBDs that were installed in 2002 in order to comply with SOLAS. Given
the sheer number of products involved, we are expecting demand from customers
to be very high as the expiry deadline draws near.”

The Ocenco M-20.2 is one of the most popular choices with
ship owners because it is maintenance-free over its 15-year service life. It is
also one of the world’s smallest compressed oxygen EEBDs and can provide up to
32 minutes of protection.

Survitec already supplies a wide range of marine safety
products and services and owns some of the most reputable brands in the
industry including RFD, Beaufort, DSB, DBC, SurvitecZodiac, RFD Toyo, Brude and

As a result of the recent merger with Wilhelmsen Maritime
Services in November 2016, Survitec is also able to offer enhanced fire safety
capabilities across ports around the globe.
