AMI Marine have launched the all new X2 Voyage Data Recorder. Carefully researching the current market and the needs of ship owners, managers and their crew safety. With an in-house group of developers and engineers specialising in data recording technology, our new VDR/SVDR is designed for simple use together with rugged reliability, whilst always operating quietly in the background.

This cost-effective VDR solution allows for easy installation which can always be made to fit in with your vessel schedule. Delivery, installation and all commissioning can also be completed within one price, without any unwelcome surprizes.
