Orolia Maritime announces it has signed a multi-year contract with Kongsberg Maritime, a leading global technology corporation specializing in dynamic positioning and integrated bridge solutions (IBS), to provide Netwave NW6000 voyage data recorders (VDR).

Thousands of vessels around the world depend on Kongsberg Maritime for safety, operational efficiency and sustainability. Due to significant developments in technology in recent years, the VDR systems previously installed by the Norwegian company were due to be upgraded and its global customer base required high-performance solutions for both refits and new vessels. With over 5,500 vessels currently sailing with Netwave VDR solutions, the company is the most qualified VDR manufacturer in the maritime industry and the Netwave NW6000 VDR System was selected after a competitive tendering process, as the best solution for Kongsberg Maritime’s requirements.

The Netwave NW6000 features a network switch that is designed with built-in time and space in mind and provides scalability up to the largest vessels. It also has the possibility to record video from cameras placed in key locations on a vessel to provide additional information on the situation on-board and the possibility to integrate with various IBS (Integrated Bridge Systems). With this integration, the bridge crew have access to replay of various VDR recordings.

The Netwave NW6000 VDR has all IMO required certifications including Wheelmark, Russian Register, and China Class. In today’s market, it provides the smallest footprint, economical installation costs and unrivalled operational value.
