Starting with the Cunard Line, the LOBO advanced platform system will be rolled out across the entire Carnival UK fleet, following a successful trial period.
This will revolutionise how Carnival carries out maintenance and repair work, ensuring that all tasks can be carried out safely and efficiently, whether at sea or port, the company said.
With LOBO Systems,’ modular design, the platform can be easily assembled and adjusted to fit any space, making it the perfect solution for work at height on ships of all sizes.
In addition, the platform can be quickly and easily adapted to suit the specific needs of each job, allowing for fast, safe, and efficient work, regardless of the task at hand.
“Following the successful pilot of the new LOBO System on the ‘Ventura’ cruise ship, we would like to focus on rolling out across the Cunard Fleet, starting with the ‘Queen Mary 2’,” said the Fleet Safety Training Manager at Carnival UK.
“The LOBO System has proven on the ship to be a highly effective work platform system for accessing different heights and slopes, including tanks. It is being used for service maintenance and refit – traditional scaffolding cannot access these difficult-to-reach areas. Not only does LOBO save time, but it also saves money on using external contractors.” The company added.
For on board maintenance teams to be able use the system safely, LOBO will also deliver a certificated training course, enabling the fleet trainers to train their on-ship team to build, inspect and use the kit safely.
