More VDR Orders for Danelec in China

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Danelec Marine has received orders to supply Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs) and Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS) for 18 offshore support vessels in China. The orders were taken by Danelec’s distributor Xiamen Huayi for ships under construction at a shipyard in Fujian province.

Danelec Marine said it has seen a surge of business from Chinese shipyards, having booked 48 additional orders for its next-generation VDRs from nine different Chinese shipyards last month. The company recently opened an office in Shanghai to support its rapidly growing business in China.

The Danelec DM100 VDR is the only VDR to be type approved and wheelmarked to meet all the technical requirements contained in the new IMO standard, which came into force July 1. All new VDR installations must now be in compliance with the new standard.

“Our success in the China shipbuilding market is attributable to the efforts of our hard-working distribution partners like Xiamen Huayi,” said Hans Ottosen, CEO of Danelec Marine. “We are taking steps to beef up our sales and service support for our Chinese distributors through our new office in Shanghai. We have also established Certified Service Centers in China to ensure ready availability of products and spares.”
