Free-Fall Systems

Freefall solutions enable fast evacuation in an emergency. Boats are designed to accelerate gently during water entry. They are designed for safe and efficient launching and retrieval.

ACEBI freefall lifeboats are designed and tested in accordance with the latest IMO/SOLAS regulations (MED 96/98 EC).

Two versions are available: tanker and dry cargo.

All boats are fitted with equipment meeting European standards and all have BUKH engines. The electrical charging system is from DEFA.
