Reliable and flexible VSAT essential for seismic vessel operator

Marlink, the global provider of maritime satellite communications, has recently extended its contract with seismic vessel operator Fugro-Geoteam for a further five years. As part of the latest agreement, Marlink will supply its innovative Sealink(TM) VSAT service to the seismic vessels via Marlink's Eik teleport in Norway, providing 512 Kbps of bandwidth and 10-15 telephone lines for each vessel. 

"For safe, efficient and reliable operation of our vessels worldwide, it's important to have satellite communications solutions that we can trust. Marlink has proven to supply us with high quality services and bandwidth, reliable connectivity and great flexibility to tailor solutions to our specific needs," comments Øyvind Haddal, ICT-Manager, Fugro-Geoteam AS. "We are very satisfied with the level of service provided by Marlink and are glad to be extending our agreement with the company further."

Marlink's latest contract with Fugro-Geoteam follows a new global agreement with Fugro Marine Services BV, which has established Marlink as a preferred supplier of VSAT communications to Fugro vessels worldwide. The new agreement offers a special benefit to both companies, enabling Fugro to take advantage of increased cost efficiency and flexibility of service, while Marlink further strengthens its relationship with one of the world's leading data collection service providers. 

Tore Morten Olsen, CEO, Marlink, comments, "Marlink has been providing services to several Fugro Group divisions for a number of years and the new global pricing agreement has enabled us to maintain a very strong relationship with the company. Our latest agreement with Fugro-Geoteam proves our commitment to offering unmatched global support to our customers, as well as our capability to provide flexible and reliable satellite communication services within the demanding seismic sector."

Owning several teleports worldwide, including Eik in Norway, Marlink is able to provide high quality, reliable connectivity as well as exceptional flexibility of service. The company has also established customer service centres operating in major regions throughout the world. This level of regional presence means that Marlink is able to offer faster, more effective and locally focused service intervention and customer support when required.
