SMM 2022 Round Up

The 2022 SMM event in Hamburg has come to an end. Unfortunately, SMM 2020 was cancelled due to the Pandemic, so we were thrilled to be going again in 2022 to represent British manufacturing. Marred by the passing of our beloved Queen, our friends, and visitors to SMM were sure to come by our stand to offer their condolences, it was very touching to see how far across the world Her Majesty reached.

X2 VDR at SMM with AMI Marine

Showcasing off our flagship X2 VDR & S-VDR

As always visitors were excited to try out the X2 VDR which launched in 2019. Since then, we have trained an additional 150 engineers across numerous countries. The X2 is now a firm favourite of ship owners and crew especially around the globe.


The X2 VDR provides a high performance, reliable and competitively priced solution to vessels of all types and sizes. In addition, the X2 is also available as an S-VDR configuration, allowing older vessels to continually meet legislative requirements without the expense of a full VDR installation.
