Orolia Maritime VDR for Kongsberg

More than 5,500 vessels currently sail with Netwave VDR solutions More than 5,500 vessels currently sail with Netwave VDR solutions

Orolia Maritime has signed a multi-year contract with Kongsberg Maritime to provide Netwave NW6000 voyage data recorders (VDR).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}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 onboard 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.

Kongsberg Maritime had recently made the decision to upgrade its VDR systems and chose Orolia’s solution following a competitive tendering process. Due to more than 5,500 vessels currently sailing with Netwave VDR, Kongberg chose Orolia’s product in the end.  

 “Our customers have fleets that travel all over the world, traversing some of the most remote waters on the planet. 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,” said Geir Svendsen, purchasing director for Kongsberg Maritime.

Chris Loizou, Orolia’s VP Maritime, stated: “We pride ourselves on our expertise, the technical prowess of our products and our global service network. We’re very pleased to be able to support Kongsberg Maritime, a reference in the maritime industry, and the fleets which use our technology. We are looking forward to working with the team over the coming years and continuing to evolve our offering with the owner/operator in mind.”

The Netwave NW6000 VDR has all IMO required certifications including Wheelmark, Russian Register, and China Class.{/mprestriction}
