Offshore Embarkation System – SELSTAIR 
VIKING Selstair is a collapsible stair system that serves to facilitate the embarkation and disembarkation of offshore installations. Non-slip aluminium steps, handrails, landings and a closing net around the staircase guarantee safe passage for all. All components are stored in a container when the system is in parked position. A custom-made interface module for transfer between staircase and vessel is integrated in the system. The Selstair is operated by a winch with remote launching features. Safe and efficient deployment will prevent all unauthorized access from the sea.
