ErgoFit SOLAS 200Survitec has introduced its new ErgoFit SOLAS lifejacket from its brand Crewsaver, which is suitable for working on wind turbines and during offshore crew transfer operations.

The lifejacket offers cross-compatibility with a range of fall arrest harnesses, an integrated sprayhood with airway protection, and Fusion 3D technology. The contoured fit moulds to the shape of the wearer and sits off the neck, giving the user total freedom of movement and making it comfortable to wear all day. The lifejacket features dual side adjusters to closely reflect the clothing worn, plus a padded air mesh internal construction to provide further comfort in warm weather. In the event of a deployment, potentially from a significant height, supporting an unconscious casualty, the lifejacket’s in-water performance needs to be faultless. The lifejacket rotates an unconscious person face-up in just 2.6 seconds, comfortably exceeding the SOLAS standard of four seconds.

The lifejacket ensures a freeboard of 125mm is maintained thanks to an inflatable chin support that holds the head up and back, keeping the airway clear. The lifejacket, combined with varying designs of fall arrest harness, can be used for external work when over water, such as on blades, the transition piece, or the monopile. The lifejacket has been designed to integrate with fall arrest harnesses from Petzl, Skylotec, and Cresto. The ErgoFit SOLAS has secured its SOLAS approval in March 2023 and is currently undergoing additional certifications ahead of its delivery, scheduled for early 2024.
