Certification of Life Safety Equipment

The certification of all life safety equipment and materials enables BST vessels to be safer and more reliable, as their component parts conform to rigorous standards approved by international maritime regulations. Each vessel is provided with several pieces of life safety equipment and material. This equipment must be inspected, tested and verified on a regular basis. With this in mind, Black Sea Terminal has contracted a specialized company to undertake the inspection, repair, and certification of the life safety equipment on our hopper dredger – the Marian B.


The certification of this equipment covers important, life-saving items such as life buoys and jackets, life rafts, lifeboats, electrical protective equipment, immersions suits, first-aid kits, and firefighting equipment. All the defective or non-compliant equipment identified during the inspection have been removed and replaced with new well-functioning equipment. The certification also included the deployment of life boats and the inspection of lifting equipment and appliances.


All life safety equipment has been provided with validity certificates after completion of the planned inspection process in compliance with the International Maritime Organizations guidelines and resolutions.
