UK Royal Fleet Auxiliary ships get Danelec VDRs

Danelec Marine reports that it has supplied Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs) to three UK Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA) Bay-Class Landing Ship Dock (LSD) vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The three ships – RFA Lyme Bay, RFA Mounts Bay and RFA Cardigan Bay – have been fitted with Danelec DM100 VDRs, replacing the existing VDRs which are no longer supported by the manufacturer.

The new equipment brings the ships into compliance with the new IMO VDR performance standards, which came into force in 2014.

The orders for the RFA ships were taken by Radio Holland UK, which was responsible for overseeing the installation and commissioning of the VDRs on the three ships. Radio Holland UK is also providing worldwide service and support for the VDRs, including mandatory annual performance tests, as well as full life-cycle management of the bridge electronics on the vessels.{/mprestriction}
