Kongsberg Maritime is to integrate Netwave voyage data recorders (VDR) from Orolia Maritime into its onboard equipment packages, following the agreement of a new multi-year contract between the companies.
The Netwave NW6000 systems will be supplied to a number of existing Kongsberg Maritime customers whose onboard VDR were due to be upgraded, Orolia says, and will also be included in packages supplied to new vessels going forward.
“Our customers have fleets that travel all over the world, traversing some of the most remote waters on the planet,” said Geir Svendsen, Purchasing Director for Kongsberg Maritime.
“The worldwide service provided by Orolia Maritime, combined with the integration possibilities and ease of installation of its VDR solutions, makes it the perfect fit for Kongsberg Maritime and our customers.”
The Netwave system can be integrated with various IBS (Integrated Bridge Systems) set-ups, and offers the possibility to record video from cameras placed in key locations on a vessel to provide additional information on evolving situations on board. Bridge crews can also access replays of the various VDR recordings as required.
