Roxana Shipping completes Fleet Xpress upgrade

Ship manager Roxana Shipping has recently completed a major technology upgrade project, installing Inmarsat’s Fleet Xpress (FX) on all ten of its tanker fleet. The project has provided each vessel with the two Mb FX package in combination with Infinity Plus and Cobham 60 GX antennas, resulting in a significant bandwidth and technology boost for both their business and crew welfare requirements.

Stelios Kontozoglou, IT manager and company cybersecurity officer for Roxana, said: “Having recently completed the roll-out of Fleet Express on our tanker fleet with Navarino, we are more than happy with the benefits that the system offers.

“The increased bandwidth and lower latency has been a game-changer, facilitating a number of possibilities that were just not feasible before, including easier remote support, faster, low-cost crew internet and the ability to exchange large amounts of data with the vessel without restrictions or monthly quotas.”

Furthermore, the lower latency makes a big difference to using on-line applications such as remote inspections and audits, remote control, teleconferencing and so on. Cost control is also made much simpler thanks to FX’s fixed fee, All You Can Eat model each month, with no unexpected cost surprises.

Mr Kontozoglou confirmed that the FX installations went smoothly, without any issues. The Navarino team was on hand to assist when needed. “Fleet Xpress coupled with Navarino’s Infinity has given us a strong foundation and the infrastructure to introduce other advanced applications going forward.”

Ioannis Brougiannakis, Navarino’s account manager for Roxana, said: “Communication is an essential part of the ship’s infrastructure as it links people and systems onboard to the shore office. In addition, the reliable, high-speed crew internet that FX provides is a must-have and is especially important now during these difficult times.  Our Infinity platform provides an ever-growing list of tested, functional tools for ship operators and combines well with our 24/7 5-star customer experience that we strive to offer all our customers. Navarino is very proud of our partnership with Roxana Shipping and we look forwards to working closely with them for many years to help them meet all of their technology needs.”
