Danelec Marine VDRs for Indian Government vessels
26 October 2017

It was announced from Birkeroed, Denmark, on 25 October that maritime technology company Danelec Marine had engaged in a new partnership with the government of India. The deal, struck by a Danelec local distributor, is the first Indian government contract for the company. The deal entails fitting out newly-built ships with Voyage Data Recorders or VDRs (see illustration), including 12 Indian Coast Guard patrol boats, and retrofitting in six Indian Navy frigates. With production beginning in 2018 to be completed by 2019, the contract paves the way for future partnerships and a continued presence in the region.
