Teekay agrees $4m VSAT deal with NSSLGlobal

Teekay has signed a new $4 million VSAT upgrade and contract extension with satellite communications provider NSSLGlobal, which will double the bandwidth speeds for both the onboard crew and operational network, and provide additional technical managed services to allow Teekay to roll out new fleet-wide applications.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The upgrade will be rolled out in the next few months across Teekay’s fleet of conventional tankers and LNG Carriers, totalling 125 vessels.

“NSSLGlobal is a longstanding communications partner to Teekay. We have a great relationship and we’ve always been extremely satisfied with the service and support that we’ve received,” said Deborah Sloan, contracts specialist, Teekay.

“With our contract coming up for renewal both NSSLGlobal and Teekay have worked hard to provide our vessels even greater flexibility, stability, and availability of communication services.”

NSSLGlobal’s VSAT IP@SEA service provides Ku- and C-band coverage using six global teleports, supporting 24 satellite beams and two Network Operation Centres. The company also offers Ka- and L-band services from operators like Inmarsat, Thuraya and Iridium.

“This contract upgrade is in keeping with NSSLGlobal’s broad policy of fostering long-term, partnering relationships with its customers through high quality service provision and joint developments,” said Priya Patel, APAC regional sales director, NSSLGlobal.

“We have been working in the maritime industry for over 40 years and in the current challenging market environment that the global shipping market is facing our customers, including Teekay, can be confident that they can continue to depend on our support for many years to come.”{/mprestriction}
