Marine evacuation system

Marine Evacuation Systems (MES) allow for the rapid transfer of a maximum number of passengers and crew from the distressed vessel to life rafts

The sea evacuation system or the guarantee of a successful rescue

Designed for mass evacuation

The MES have been developed to offer a massive evacuation capacity, up to 700 people for the largest models.

Different types of MES depending on your needs

MES are usually in the form of a slide or ramp and are associated with a liferaft.

Fast and efficient implementation

Most evacuation systems require only one or two people to deploy and the system takes only a few minutes to set up.
