Radio Holland gets remote-monitoring deal for 35 China Navigation vessels

(ROTTERDAM, Netherlands) — Radio Holland has signed a maintenance and remote monitoring agreement with the China Navigation Co. (CNCo) for 35 vessels.

Radio Holland already provides CNCo’s newbuild, multipurpose vessels and bulk carriers with navcom packages. The latest agreement covers the maintenance of this equipment on board 35 vessels. This further cooperation follows a successful remote monitoring pilot project. Radio Holland will now introduce remote monitoring throughout CNCo’s fleet.

Martin Cresswell, fleet director, the China Navigation Co., said, “The maintenance agreement with Radio Holland has been designed to dovetail with the end of the warranty period for our newbuildings and is a continuation of the excellent cooperation that we have built up over the last few years. The agreement incorporates remote monitoring, which we believe will significantly reduce out of service periods, increasing operational safety.”     

The 24/7 remote monitoring services offered through the managed service agreement cut onboard maintenance time considerably. Additionally, by Radio Holland engineers testing equipment remotely and verifying data, regulatory and mandatory equipment surveys can be reduced by up to 50 percent.
