VDR and S-VDR systems as per SOLAS Regulation V/20 require Annual Performance Tests in accordance with IMO MSC.1/Circ.1222. As such, the Annual Performance Test may only be carried out by the manufacturer or a person authorised by the manufacturer.

Kilo Marine Electronics Ltd is authorised to carry out APT's by the following manufacturers:

- Furuno Electric Company Ltd
- Netwave Systems Ltd

Our experienced Technicians/Surveyors operate around the UK, providing a nationwide service.
They are manufacturer trained and equipped to carry out Annual Performance Tests on Netwave and Furuno VDR and S-VDR systems.

For APT's required to be carried out overseas we are happy to organise the attendance of a locally approved company and we are therefore not limited to our own authorisation.
Should any service or repairs be necessary we can also arrange for follow up service calls to repair any problems.

For busy technical superintendents, dealing with Kilo Marine
Electronics Ltd as a "one-stop-shop" for all of their VDR, radio and electronic navigational service will relieve them from additional paperwork and having to shop around and find reliable service companies. Kilo Marine Electronics Ltd have built up reliable working relationships with many overseas radio companies around the world covering most of the major ports and equipment manufacturers.

From our workshop in Redhill, Southeast England we have local access to all ports on the River Thames
London, Kent and Essex as well as being conveniently located only 1.5 hours away from Dover and
Southampton. For overseas attendance we are located close to London Heathrow and Gatwick international

Kilo Marine Electronics Ltd are ISO 9001:2008 accredited.
