Telemar took the order from Italian shipowner Tirrenia, which is replacing VDRs on passenger and cargo ships operating in the Mediterranean. Aage Hempel took the order from Feederlines, which is replacing VDRs on eight dry cargo ships.
Both companies are installing DM400 VDRs and will be responsible for shipboard service and mandatory annual performance tests for the VDRs.
“Telemar and Aage Hempel are excellent examples of our worldwide sales and service distribution network,” said Hans Ottosen, CEO of Danelec Marine. “Both companies are very strong in their technical capabilities and their philosophy of customer service is totally compatible with ours at Danelec.”
Earlier this month, Danelec Marine announced that it is establishing up to 20 certified service centres. Telemar and Aage Hempel will be among those centres, which will maintain an inventory of replacement units and spares to ensure availability at short notice to ships around the world.
