Viking Open Reversible Liferaft (ORIL) DKR
Open reversible type. Stowed in rigid fibreglass container as per attached drawing and certified by DNV to comply to relevant flag state approvals.
The 65 persons open reversible liferaft is mainly used for passenger ships operating in inland and coastal waters. The open reversible liferaft is intended for shipwreched persons likely to be exposed to bad weather conditions only for a short period before being located and picked up. Being fully reversible, this type of liferaft can be used either way up, its floor being placed in between the two buoyancy chambers. The open reversible liferaft is released from its cradle and thrown overboard, or slides automatically when released. Once waterborne the liferaft inflates on a hard pull of the painter line and is then ready for boarding.
