Netwave to supply 36 VDRs in the Middle East

Mutawa Marine has 26 vessels Mutawa Marine has 26 vessels

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.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Offshore company Mutawa owns and operates a fleet of 26 DP and offshore support vessels. The ships operate in the Middle East and Zener Electronics, Netwave’s partner in Dubai, will perform the installations.

Netwave notes that, while the vessels do not normally have to comply with the official international VDR regulations, the owners have decided to install the VDRs as the ships normally work within the range of vessels above 3,000 gt, and contractors are requesting VDRs to be part of the navigation equipment in order to always have data on hand in case of an emergency.

“With the possibility to have remote monitoring of the VDRs, which enables the manager to receive heart beats, check on event logs and, if needed, arrange complete downloads in case of emergency, the Netwave solution provides a management tool for the owners to always have access to the recorded data,” said Mark van Ede, sales director Netwave Systems.

The VDRs will be supported by the 1,100-engineers in Netwave’s Service Network in more than 65 countries, covering more than 160 ports.{/mprestriction}
