Imperial Receives Order For 500 Survival Suits

—Literature Available Imperial Manufacturing Co. of Bremerton, Wash., a leading producer of survival suits, has written a contract for over 500 survival suits for two new ODECO drilling rigs.

The Ocean Valiant and Ocean America rigs are being built in Korea by Hyundai Heavy Industries for ODECO (Ocean Drilling & Exploration Company), and are expected to be operational next year.

ODECO has had Imperial survival suits on all its offshore platforms for four years. Last fall the survival suits helped save the lives of employees swept overboard off the Coast of Mexico during Hurricane Juan. One person survived more than 20 hours of exposure in the 50- foot waves, wearing the Imperial survival suit.

Imperial provides adult standard, jumbo, and child's size survival suits. The suit fits over clothing and can be donned in about one minute.

Imperial has worked with various governing bodies, including the Coast Guard and Underwriters Laboratory, for 15 years in testing and developing safe standards.
