Maersk Line newbuilds to install Danelec VDRs

27 newbuild Maersk Line containerships will be outfitted with Danelec VDRs 27 newbuild Maersk Line containerships will be outfitted with Danelec VDRs

Danelec Marine reports that it has received orders to supply Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs) for 27 new Maersk containerships, currently under construction at shipyards in China and Korea.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The deal for the newbuild VDRs follows on from a fleet retrofit contract awarded last year, under which Danelec is replacing the existing VDRs and Simplified VDRs (S-VDRs) on 100 Maersk vessels with its latest generation DM100 technology. These retrofits are expected to be completed this year.

Each of the new Maersk ships will also be fitted with a Danelec Marine VDRConnect module, used to allow remote downloads of VDR data at shore offices using Danelec’s VDR OnDemand software, which allows authorised shore offices to log on and request specific data sets via an IP link.

Once implemented, ship managers (or specified service technicians) can collect data samples and perform diagnostics of the VDR and connected systems while the ship is at sea.

In addition, the ship manager can request a transfer of recorded data for instant replay ashore, which may be critical when responding to an incident on board the ship.{/mprestriction}
