Danelec gets OK for new ECDIS


Denmark-based Danelec Marine received approval from DNV GL for its new ECDIS models DM700 and DM800 G2, meaning the products meet all applicable technical requirements, including the new IEC 61174 Ed. 4, IHO-52 and IHO S-64 performance standards.

The Danelec DM800 G2 and DM700 ECDIS models are based on a custom-built computer running on Linux-based software. ECDIS is Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems.

“We are providing free upgrades for installed legacy DM800 ECDIS products,” said Hans Ottosen, CEO of Danelec Marine. “In some cases this will involve swapping out the older hardware, but for existing DM800 G2 installations, it’s simply a matter of software upgrades which can be installed by the ship’s crew.”
