Orolia, the owner of the McMurdo and Kannad brands, has entered into an agreement to acquire Netherlands-based Netwave Systems, a supplier of Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs), automated vessel monitoring products and safety services.
Netwave reports that it has received orders to deliver VDRs for six newbuild Patrol Craft to be operated by an unnamed maritime law enforcement agency in South East Asia.
Voyage Data Recorder manufacturer NetWave has introduced its new SeaWise ‘Big Data’ technology, with the aim of assisting shipowners in analysing and improving long term ship technical performance as well as providing reporting via a shore-based virtual private Cloud environment.
Netwave reports that it has completed the installation of a new VDR for charitable organisation Mercy Ships, which provides free live-saving surgeries in areas with restricted access to medical care by using hospital ships to sail into the harbours of remote countries.
Netwave has confirmed that it has received orders to supply its VDR systems to the Mutawa Marine fleet, as well as another offshore company in the UAE oil & gas industry, which will see 36 ships equipped in total.
