Danelec-Marines DM100-VDR Type Approved by BSH

Danelec Marine A/S announced introduction of their new-generation DM100 VDR, the first VDR on the market to be type-approved and Wheelmarked under the new IMO standard. The DM100 VDR has been type approved by Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und Hydrographie (BSH) in Germany.
 

The BSH type approval certifies that the Danelec DM100 VDR meets all the revised International Maritime Organization (IMO) performance standards and technical requirements, as defined in IMO Resolution MSC.333(90) and IEC 61996-1 Ed.2, and complies with European Union Wheelmark requirements.
 
The new IMO standards were adopted in May 2012 and come into effect July 1, 2014. After that date, all VDR installations for newbuilds and retrofits must meet the new IMO standards.
 
Our team has over the past years been fully dedicated to develop a new state of the art VDR and we have invested substantially in ensuring an industry leading solution. Our new Danelec DM100 VDRs are now in production, and we are fully ready to supply IMO-compliant VDRs to ensure ships worldwide are able to be in conformance with the new standard after July 1, 2014.
 
The Danelec DM100 VDR incorporates the company’s revolutionary SoftWare Advanced Protection (SWAP) technology, which stores all program memory and configuration files on a hot-swappable memory card. If the VDR fails, the service technicians simply remove the memory card from the malfunctioning VDR and insert it into a replacement unit.

The faulty unit can then be taken ashore and sent to a Danelec workshop for repair, allowing the ship to sail on schedule.
