Xervo to Outfit Maersk with Lifeboat Systems

Maersk Drilling has chosen to equip its soon-to-be completed XL Enhanced 4 rig with seven Boat-In-A-Box lifeboat and rescue boat systems from the Danish davit manufacturer Xervo.

The system was developed in line with NORSOK R-002 standards and meets those standards, which was one of the reasons that Maersk Drilling chose Xervo.

Xervo has also delivered lifeboat systems to the other XLE projects. The first rig in the series has just been delivered.

”It’s been an exciting assignment to work on. Via a comprehensive development co-operation with Maersk Drilling, KeppelFELS and DNV, we’ve set new standards for safety levels and reliability on this project.

We can now document an uptime for the system of over 99.98%, and we look forward to carrying forward all of the experiences we’ve gained here onto the next XLE project,” said Esben Juul Sørensen, CEO at Xervo.

Maersk Drilling also chose Xervo as a supplier on the Maersk Innovator rig, which operates in the Norwegian part of the North Sea.

The rig, which is leased by ConocoPhillips, needs to replace its lifeboat systems in order to meet the new, stricter regulations, and the changes will have to be made while the rig is operational.
