Danelec Marine has opened an office in Shanghai to serve its growing business in China. The company also said it has received orders for 48 of its next-generation DM100 Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs) from nine Chinese shipyards.

The orders were placed through four Danelec licensed distributors in China. The shipyards are Jiangdong, Sanfu, China Merchants Heavy Industry (Shenzhen), Fujian Mawei, Chengxi Shipbuilding, Cosco Dalian, Zhejiang Ouhua, Zhejiang Yangfan and Zhejiang Zengzhou. All of the sets will be delivered for newbuilds over the next 12 months.

The Danelec DM100 meets all the technical requirements of the new IMO VDR Standard, which comes into force July 1. After that date, all VDR installations must be in compliance with the new requirements.

“Our new office in Shanghai will enable us to provide faster and more efficient service and technical support for our rapidly growing business in China,” said Hans Ottosen, CEO of Danelec Marine. “China represents an important growth market for our business, as can plainly be seen from the surge of orders already being placed for our new IMO-compliant VDRs ahead of the July 1 deadline.”

Ottosen noted that Danelec Marine has also established its first Certified Service Center in China as part of its global strategy to upgrade its existing network of factory-licensed servicing distributors in more than 50 countries.
