Danelec sets up service center in Northern Europe


Latvia-based Hansael has become a certified service center for Denmark-based Danelec Marine’s Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs) and Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS). As such, Hansael will maintain an inventory of replacement units and spares to ensure availability at short notice across the region.

“Upgrading our operation to become a full certified service center positions Hansael to provide prompt service to Danelec-equipped ships across the Baltic region and to follow up our business model, ‘first-time come, first-time fix’,” said Olegs Orlovs, Hansael commercial director.

Founded in 1997, Hansael is a marine electronics equipment and service provider based in Riga, Latvia. Danelec maintains certified service centers at 15 locations in North America, South America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, as well as service facilities in more than 50 countries.

“We adhere to a program of continuous improvement across all aspects of our service program, with standardized policies and procedures, extensive training and quality control,” said Hans Ottosen, CEO of Danelec Marine. “In addition, our products are designed with our exclusive SoftWare Advanced Protection (SWAP) technology that uses a hot-swappable memory card containing all software programs and memory files.”
