History

Founded in 1995, Danelec develops technologies to optimize the safety, cost, and performance of operations on diverse vessels from commercial ships including tankers, container ships and bulk carriers through to offshore support vessels, jack-up rigs and cruise ships. Today, the company is headed by Casper Jensen, with the European specialist growth equity investor Verdane as majority shareholder.

Based outside of Copenhagen, Denmark, the company is a leading manufacturer of Voyage Data Recorders (VDR) and ship-2-shore data solutions. Following Danelec’s acquisition of KYMA AS, a Norway-based supplier of torque meters and specialist in ship performance monitoring systems, in December 2021, Danelec has become the world’s largest maritime data collection solutions provider.

Over 10,000 ships use the combined company’s solutions globally, collecting information from equipment across the ship and providing owners and operators the data to more efficiently manage their assets by i.e., streamlining route planning and vessel performance optimisation, thereby reducing CO2 emissions.

 

Our qualtity commitment

In order to ensure the highest quality of service throughout the lifetime of our products, Danelec service partners and their technicians are required to adhere to stringent standards and best practices in order to perform expert and effective service and maintenance.

The service partner

The service partner is required to have all parts for service and Annual Performance Testing (APT) in stock, including spare batteries in good condition, stored correctly, and with at least 4 years left before the expiry date is reached.

The technician

Technicians must hold a valid Danelec-issued certificate for the specific product and model being serviced. The technician's performance is continuously reviewed and appraised.

Danelec also requires technicians to submit a Service Performance Test (SPT) for any service or maintenance task carried out on Danelec VDRs. Unique in the industry, the purpose of the mandatory SPT is to check that the VDR is in good working condition after being serviced and that repairs have been carried out correctly. Furthermore, it enables Danelec to monitor, log and build a service history of the VDR and enables early warning in case of any unusual issues.
