The SAFE TRANSFER© personnel basket was developed in 1985 by the Danish shipping company ESVAGT A/S.
With the strong dedication to be the leading company providing safety and support at sea, Esvagt A/S decided to develop to their customers a basket with the highest possible safety standards. The basis was a rigid (non-foldable) structure made of AISI 316l stainless steel with shock absorption.
Because of the success of the basket ESVAGT A/S decided in 2014, to transfer the production rights to WEST-MARINE A/S, and so the company SAFE TRANSFER A/S was established to continue the success and improve the basket further.
SAFE TRANSFER A/S owns all rights regarding the development, production, service and the distribution of the personnel transfer baskets.
Starting with a 4-person basket, our development department has developed an 8-person model in 2012 and in 2018 the worlds first NORSOK R002:2017 approved basket. In 2018 we improved the pad eye to further increase the safety of our products. All new baskets have three lifting points, where the compensator and lifting sling are attached independently.
