Marine Safety and aquata enter cooperation

aquata, German manufacturer of Immersion-, Rescue- and Working suits (IRW), and Marine Safety, a rising Norwegian company and supplier for offshore safety equipment, have agreed upon a collaboration.

Complete Safety Package for workers in the Offshore Industry

Working safety is a matter of major importance in the offshore industry. In the course of installation, operation and maintenance of offshore wind turbines or oil and gas exploitation platforms on the high seas, employees have to work in a quite challenging environment. This poses a real challenge for occupational health and safety. Safety standards are very high and measures for the prevention of potential hazard situations must be taken.

Marine Safety is committed to this ambitious task. Marine Safety is a distributor with a comprehensive Complete Safety Package for occupational health and safety in relation to the offshore environment. The young company relies exclusively on German quality. With the aquata IRW suits Marine Safety will expand its portfolio.

"For us, high quality equipment and good training is the only thing you can trust when an accident occurs. German companies have a good reputation in Norway when it comes to this. Great engineering skills combined with dedication to its work, create the best products. This combination we only find in Germany", Kim Aasland, General Manager and founder or Marine Safety, emphasized.

Usability, safety and quality are a personal concern to Kim Aasland. As a long-standing member of the Norwegian Navy and coastguard, he looks back on a personal experience of more than 10 years and knows the dangers of the high seas.

Marine Safety customers do not only benefit from this experience, but also from a Complete Safety Package at the highest level. In order to meet the high quality standards of the company, Marine Safety puts its trust in Secumar lifejackets and Bornack Fallstop Safety equipment, as well as in aquata IRW suits. For managing director Aasland, the advantages of the aquata IRW suits are obvious. Beside the use of high-quality materials and the deployment of sophisticated manufacturing processes, all suits have well elaborated lifesaving features and are certified according to SOLAS as 1H suit, as well as to DIN ISO 15027 -2/3.

With an experience of more than 35 years and well over 160.000 IRW-suits sold, Marine Safety considers aquata as the perfect partner and is proud to represent aquata in the future on the Norwegian (Off-Shore) market.
