First VDR for inland shipping
Orolia has partnered with Radio Holland to develop the world’s first Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) solution specifically designed for inland shipping.
The Inland NW6000R VDR solution will enhance safe navigation and ship performance and provide tools for understanding the cause of incidents. Radio Holland will also be installing Orolia’s Netwave VDR NW6000 series as its preferred global VDR solution for retrofit and newbuild projects, while Orolia will utilise Radio Holland’s established global network as one of its globally preferred service partners.
Paul Smulders, CEO Europe for Radio Holland, said: “The VDR is obligatory in Deepsea Shipping, but for inland shipping it is also a relevant tool to enhance safety and ship performance. The NW6000R VDR is perfectly suitable to monitor, measure and improve the performance of the ship.”
The architecture of Orolia’s renewed Netwave NW6000 VDR system is based on the latest ethernet technology, using PoE (Power over Ethernet) solution. This leads to reduced need for cabling saving in installation time. As an increased number of navigation and communication equipment with ethernet output will become available onboard ships, the NW6000 VDR can provide additional tooling for performance measurements. Next to the standard VDR function, the NW6000 VDR can be used for optimising ship performance.
Radio Holland will also adopt Orolia’s M-SecureSync system as its preferred navigation cyber security technology. The M-SecureSync employs various technologies to resist GPS/GNSS jamming and spoofing attacks, alert the bridge to discrepancies in the navigation signals and activate defence solutions.
