Wilhelmsen Ships Service has signed an agreement with DS Schiffahrt / Quadrant Bereederung to supply liferafts to their fleet of 39 vessels.

Under the deal, worth $200,000 each year, Wilhelmsen will supply the liferafts under the Liferaft Exchange Agreement, which replaces service-due liferafts with ones already serviced, thereby avoiding the delay of having them repaired.

The fleet includes 28 vessels from DS Schiffahrt and 11 from Quadrant Bereederung.

The service system provides a dockside exchange of liferafts, ensuring that each vessel is prepared for annual inspection and meets safety legislation.
