Viking has introduced its new all-on-one VIKING YouSafe Hightide suit featuring rescue harnesses, gloves and descent device robust enough to support an outside descent and the built-in buoyancy so that a person in distress can stay in the water until rescuers arrive.
Made so that the user loses no more than 2 degrees Celcius of core body temperature in the water over a six-hour period, the suit can also be donned in a single operation and its harness hooks connected to the platform to lower himself/herself from the platform. The solution can be used to lower two people at a time, and is also viable for lowering personnel who are unconscious. A 10MW turbine would feature storage capacity for eight sets of suits, harnesses, descent devices and headlamps.
