Who is Safe Transfer?

A long time before the company Safe Transfer was established, one of the former owners of ESVAGT A/S decided to develop the world´s safest transfer basket. This basket was sold and known as the “ESVAGT” basket.

Therefore, focusing on safety we are proud to say, that we have probably, the world’s most secure personnel transfer basket.

In 2014 the ownership was given to Safe Transfer A/S – a company owned by West-Marine A/S. The owner is Kent Kirk, and he also owns the company Nordhavn Power Solutions A/S.

The idea of making the safest personnel transfer basket in the world is more true than ever.

We even continuously enhance the safety of the basket.

Starting with a 4-person transfer basket we now have several versions even adapted to personal needs. The latest basket being a sit-down basket is designed and fully approved according to the Norsok r002:2017 standard.
