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.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Africa Mercy, currently the largest civilian hospital ship in the world, was built in 1980 and previously carried a first generation VDR, which had since reached the end of its support life from its manufacturers.

“After changing out the Africa Mercy’s original VDR for a Netwave VDR, the maintenance issues we had with the older generation unit have disappeared,” said Ciaran Holden, technical superintendent for Mercy Ships.

“This new unit has been dependable for us. Having companies within the maritime industry such as Netwave partnering with us underscores that we all can be a part of helping the less fortunate.”{/mprestriction}
