Torvald Klaveness standardises IT and comms with Marlink

Marlink, and its Group subsidiary company Palantir, have agreed a deal with Torvald Klaveness to become the preferred supplier of satcom and IT management systems for vessels managed by Klaveness Ship Management.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Vessels in the fleet will be equipped with a system combining Palantir’s KeepUp@Sea remote IT service with Sealink VSAT connectivity, as well as Marlink’s XChange centralised communications management system and global L-band back-up.

KeepUp@Sea’s automated and standardised framework for vessel servers and computers provides control of networks both on board and ashore, and includes a dashboard displaying an overview of the health status for critical components on board. This single display can confirm that backups have been performed and that antivirus protection is up to date, for the whole fleet.

“Standardisation is a key pillar of our improvement and digital strategy,” said Lars Erik Luthman, head of IT & development, Torvald Klaveness.

“With Marlink’s VSAT connectivity as a backbone, the scalable KeepUp@Sea solution will allow us to consolidate our IT operations on a single platform, reducing complexity, simplifying troubleshooting and ensuring that our software, licences and anti-virus are always up to date.”

“Through this we are looking to optimise IT management on board and ashore, improve stability and availability across our fleet of 23 owned and managed ships, and ultimately reduce overall operational expenditure.”{/mprestriction}
