Telenor installs VSAT on North Sea Giant

Telenor Maritime Radio has announced that it has secured a contract with North Sea Shipping to supply a VSAT system to one of its offshore construction vessels, the North Sea Giant.

The delivery includes two large VSAT antennas (2.4 m in diameter), a modem, an arbitrator for positioning of and switching between the two antennas, UPS backup, a router and other equipment for integration of VSAT and internal systems.

The North Sea Giant is currently docked at Fayard outside Odense, Denmark, where the VSAT antenna installations were completed.

Telenor Maritime Radio, part of the Telenor Group, says that its broadband system will be used to facilitate the transfer of large quantities of data between the vessel, offshore partners and onshore operators. Crew and operational partners will have access to dedicated networks, with the ship-to-shore connection guaranteed through the use of secured lines.

The North Sea Giant was built for North Sea Shipping in 2010/2011 and chartered by Technip.
