VDR/S-VDR Annual Performance Test (APT)

The purpose of an annual performance test is to determine that a VDR/S-VDR is operational as defined in the manufacturer’s specification. In addition, because of the “black box” nature of this equipment, there is a need to have a document which clearly lists all the interfaces which have been checked to confirm compliance with the appropriate International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) test standards. This transparency is essential for surveyors or inspectors of flag Administrations port States or recognized organizations.
We are authorised to carry out annual performance test of VDR and SVDR in accordance with SOLAS regulation V/18.8 for AMI Marine, Beijing Highlander, Danelec Marine, JRC, Netwave Systems, Rutter Netwave, SAM Electronics, Samsung Heavy Industires, Broadgate (Selex Communications), Transas Marine.

Gyrocompass overhaul and maintenance

Gyrocompasses are widely used for navigation on ships, because they find true north and they are unaffected by ferromagnetic materials. It is recommended that sensitive elements are changed every three years to reduce the possibility of downtime between services and possible detention by Port State Control.
We carry an extensive stock of spare parts and inventory for Yokogawa, Alphatron Marine, and Raytheon gyrocompasses. Our engineers are factory-trained by leading manufacturers and we regularly carry out gyrocompass installation, commissioning, repair services in UAE and beyond.
