The inventor Magnar Reigstad has terminated his activities in the company Kloster Rescue Systems and has in June 2022 established a new company called Kloster Evacuation Technology in cooperation with Dimeq AS.

Through this collaboration, our 2 companies will offer the maritime industry in general, and the cruise industry in particular, a unique and revolutionary rescue system that will undoubtedly make the evacuation of passengers and crew safe and secure in an efficient and controlled manner.

We work for a safer life for everyone at sea, and have developed a lifeboat that improves all aspects of previous solutions. You enter the lifeboat, which is enclosed in the ship, safely and dry. The capsule, which is either aft facing or side facing, is sent gently and comfortably out into the sea at an angle during evacuation. The lifeboat is equipped with several engines to create a safe distance to the ship and carry an inflatable ramp for further evacuation to a helicopter.

Magnar has a background as a boat designer and inventor, and ever since he lost a friend in the Alexander Kielland accident, he has been highly motivated on finding ways to improve safety at sea. After the Sleipner disaster, as well as the almost accident with the cruise ship at Hustadvika, he has worked on designing equipment that could have prevented or reduced the extent of all three of these accidents. Along the way, he constructed the famous Torpedolifeboat, which is the starting point for the complete evacuation system he is launching today.
