 Imtech Marine and Danelec Marine, announce at the current Marintec 2013 expo in Shangai, an extension of the remote access service delivered by the Imtech Marine 24/7 GTAC, Global Technical Assistance Centre, to include data from Danelec Marine VDR (Voyage Data Recorder) systems.

“We are very pleased to add VDR data from Danelec Marine to our Imtech remote access solutions. The big advantage is that this service provides not only information of the VDR itself, it will also open up all primary navigation equipment data recorded by the VDR to our customers”, says Frank Berends, Global Manager Remote Services at Imtech Marine. “Our GTAC, supported by our Global Control Rooms in Rotterdam, Houston and Singapore, provides 24 hour follow the sun remote support on Nav/Com, VSAT, ICT, E-systems and more.”

Hans Ottosen, CEO of Danelec Marine explains: “We have basically created a flexible solution which allows extremely easy and efficient transfer of VDR data to shore without being limited by satellite data capacity. The most basic solution allows ship managers to retrieve and view VDR data from the VDR directly or via GTAC’s or Danelec’s server. In addition, as is the case of Imtech’s GTAC solution, ship managers can add a number of value added services related to analysis and monitoring depending on the specific need of the customer”. All VDR related data can be conveniently presented on a ‘dashboard’, available right at the ship manager’s PC or tablet.

Easy and efficient transfer of VDR data
The VDR remote access solution from Danelec Marine is designed to accommodate all kinds of broadband capacities onboard vessels. “Remote access solutions in the marine industry have until now been limited to vessels equipped with high satellite data capacity. The solution we have developed is a small dedicated add-on remote access interface module which can be installed on all existing VDRs and can easily communicate directly with the vessels IT / satellite communication system without the aid of a PC.

"One of the major advantages of the Danelec VDR remote access module solution is that it allows determining which data to transfer and how frequently in order to ensure that data transfer is fully aligned with satellite data capacity”, says Hans Ottosen.
