Danelec approval

Industry Database

Denmark-headquartered marine electronics company Danelec Marine has announced that classification society DNV GL has awarded a type approval certificate with EU Wheelmark designation for the new DM800 ECDIS G2 series Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS).

The DNV GL approval certifies that the new DM800 ECDIS complies with all provisions of the IMO A.694(17), MSC.191(79) and MSC.232(82) regulations.

The DM800 ECDIS G2 incorporates totally new Linux-based application software, an intuitive easy-to-learn user interface, industry-leading cartography solutions, ruggedized low-power LED display monitors and Danelec’s exclusive SoftWare Advanced Protection (SWAP) technology for shipboard service.

Danelec Marine also announced that it will provide a free upgrade for existing DM800 G1 series ECDIS products to the new type-approved DM800 ECDIS G2, as well as a free software upgrade for all DM800 ECDIS G2 products to meet the new IEC 61174, IHO 52 and IHO 64 ECDIS performance standards. All new and existing ECDIS products must be in compliance with the new IEC and IHO standards by August 2016, according to Hans Ottosen, CEO of Danelec Marine, who notes that there is no provision for “grandfathering” installed ECDIS products already type-approved to the old standard.

 “We are offering free upgrades for all installed DM800 ECDIS G1 and G2 systems, to give our customers a quick and easy pathway to the latest technology,” said Ottosen.
