The safety of the crew working on deck has been the main priority in developing the "Safety Link" deck equipment. The equipment makes it possible to carry out lifting operations and to secure mooring lines without personnel on deck.
The equipment eliminates a number of dangerous operations by securing tethered moorings and lifting operations without involving people on deck. In developing the equipment we have worked with one of Norway's largest aquaculture service vessel companies and reputable designers and manufacturers.
