Teekay has extended its VSAT contract with Marlink covering its entire shuttle tanker fleet, with the communications systems set to receive an upgrade following this new deal.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Teekay has used Marlink’s Sealink VSAT for all of its shuttle tankers since 2011, applying its communications package in areas such as remote operations and crew welfare. The new contract includes a significant bandwidth increase to support a greater level of connected applications on board, Marlink says.

The increased capacity is now live across the Teekay shuttle tanker fleet, using the already installed on board antennas, modems and routers, and will also be introduced on three new builds.

“Sealink VSAT is integral to Teekay’s ability to provide efficient vessel operations in support of our global customer base,” said Deborah Sloan, contracts specialist, Teekay.

“Marlink’s network has proven itself to be both reliable and versatile, competitively meeting the high-end needs of our technology focus on board. Sealink enables our ships to leverage connected applications that improve our operational capabilities so securing our partnership with Marlink while upgrading the bandwidth is a natural step for us.”{/mprestriction}
