According to regulations, the VDR’s main purpose is to secure evidence in case of an accident. We agree. But we want to take it a few steps further. As we strongly believe that the recorded VDR data also has a great value for other matters, Consilium’s VDR F2 is designed not only to secure evidence, but also to learn from incidents and optimize functionality.
The recorded data in the VDR is very important when investigating an accident. The VDR F2 safely records and saves data in protective storages. With optional remote access, investigations can be commenced without the need to go onboard.
Learn from incidents and secure proof
Luckily, very few accidents occur but unfortunately the number of incidents is much larger.Therefore the easy access to the recorded VDR data is an extremely valuable source for increasing general safety onboard. By remote access to recorded VDR data it is easy to go back in time to prove the vessel and crew behavior during certain situations.
The easy access to the recorded VDR data is a valuable source of information when it comes to optimizing the usage of the vessels resources. By analyzing recorded data, it is possible to find optimal vessel performance for different circumstances and find important differences in crew behavior during difficult and stressed situations.
ConServ - Consilium service agreement
With Consilium’ s service agreement ConServ, the shipowner can predict and ensure a lower service and maintenance costs. Consilium monitors and ensures that all systems have a healthy status. The vessel sends short status reports periodically to the Consilium server and the Consilium remote maintenance system analyzes the reports and updates the overview table. If a problem is identified, an engineer can easily access the onboard system remotely, for a deeper analyze to proactively suggest how to rectify the problem at minimum efforts.
