Lifeboat Release & Retrieval Systems (LRRS) Inspections & Services

Lifeboat Release and Retrieval Systems (LRRS) which are not maintained properly and or replaced when needed can lead to serious, if not fatal, injuries. MSS operate a comprehensive inspection and replacement service that ensures your equipment is always in the best condition.

We also offer a wide range of hook release systems which all comply with the very latest IMO regulations. They are compatible with all types of rescue and lifeboats to ensure all seafarers are safe when at sea.
