Headquartered in Singapore, with additional offices in Athens and Manila, EPIC Shipping owns and operates a fleet of 22 gas carriers.
Besides FB services, it has signed up for Otesat-Maritel’s s@tGate solution to provide crew pre-paid internet access and web e-mail services, as well as post-paid B2B services.
“Offering the capabilities of FleetBroadband satellite services and solutions, we ensure the simple, high-speed and cost-effective daily communication of the vessels with their companies and the crew with their loved ones,” said George Polychronopoulos, CEO of Otesat-Maritel.
Glen D’costa, managing director at EPIC, also commented: “FleetBroadband is an optimal solution as it provides the capacity and reliability we needed, while enabling us to keep close control of our costs.”
“Crew welfare is also important for our company. With this solution we have given the capability to our people on board to communicate better with their family and friends at home.”
