Norsafe, global leader in marine life-saving equipment, has received a glowing recommendation from the Australian Navy for the quality of its lifeboat servicing on one of the Navy’s replenishment vessels HMAS Sirius.
The work on the HMAS Sirius involved lifeboat overhaul and upgrade plus Non-destructive testing (NDT) inspection and overhaul of the winches and davits.
Norsafe Australia received an e-mail from Chief Petty Officer Ben Reid which said:
“I would like to express my thanks to the Ben Fuller and his team that recently completed the 60 monthly service routine on the Royal Australia Navy Replenishment Tanker HMAS SIRIUS for the 73 man fully enclosed life rafts and davits. Having just taken over the responsibility for maintaining these craft it is great to be on the receiving end of quality workmanship and attention to detail in the area of Deep Level Maintenance.”
“Whilst I have not seen the closing reports, I’m very impressed with the material state that the boats and davits have been returned in, seeing these safety critical assets receive such attention to detail is excellent, and represents Norsafe in the best possible light. Ben and his team are professional, courteous and kept the ship well informed throughout the task.”
He went on to add: “I would recommend Norsafe for this task to any one in need of quality workmanship.”

With support from the regional office in Singapore, Norsafe Australia is in an ideal location to provide servicing for the Australian oil and gas industry and is the only OEM to establish a base in this region
Endre Eidsvik, Norsafe’s SVP of Service, said: ‘’Getting positive feedback like this from clients is really pleasing and vindicates the way in which we train our personnel. Ben Fuller and his team are true professionals and receiving such great praise from the Australian Navy is tremendous.’’
