History

Founded in 1995, Danelec develops technologies to optimize the safety, cost and performance of marine operations. 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 such as travel routes and vessel performance optimisation, thereby reducing CO2 emissions.

Our qualtity commitment

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

The service partner

The service partner is required to have all parts for Service / APT available in stock including spare batteries in good condition, stored correctly, and have at least 4 years left before the expiry date is reached.

The technician

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

Danelec 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 allows to get an early warning in case of any unusual issues.

Danelec Offices

Our regional offices ensure a proximity to partners, agents and customers around the world.
