The new European members include Polaris Electronics in Denmark and Ozsay Uydu Iletisim in Turkey. In the Middle East, Dubai-based Elcome International and Zener Marine both join the partner programme, while in Asia, China‘s As Seven Seas Marine and Japan‘s Kaigai Gijyutsu K.K have also been added to the Alliance.
“We now have 15 Field Service Partners around the world,” said Gisle Asbjornsen, director, Field Service Partners, Airbus Defence and Space.
“All are proven experts in maritime VSAT and can be called into support for our standard VSAT services anywhere. A key element of the Field Service Alliance approach is that partners are established and well versed in the customs, languages and ways of working in their region, so that they are able to offer a fast and efficient service to vessels in their local ports or at sea.”
