Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Solution that increases efficiency of ship’s operations fits in Imtech Marine’s life cycle management strategy.

 
A  global maritime company Imtech Marine (Rotterdam) and satellite communications specialist Navarino (Piraeus) have announced a partnership. Imtech Marine has become global supplier of Infinity, an advanced maritime bandwidth management and optimisation solution that can be used onboard ships equipped with IP-based satellite terminals (such as Fleet BroadBand or VSAT). Imtech Marine chose Infinity for its ability to support Imtech Marine’s Global VSAT network and various connectivity solutions. Imtech Marine offices that will be offering Infinity include Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, China, Singapore and USA.


Eric van den Adel, Managing Director of Imtech Marine: “Imtech Marine‘s vision is to be a true lifecycle management partner for our customers and help them lower their Total Cost of Ownership. By effectively combining our expertise in system integration and maintenance of technology on board, we support our customers during the full lifetime of a ship. Connectivity solutions are an important part of our lifecycle portfolio. We are very happy to partner with Navarino, as they have proven that they can tailor the Infinity product to the operational needs of our customers. Infinity can provide the ship owner with detailed reports on usage and visualize the savings on their airtime, while providing the most economical and effective business and crew communications. It is a very effective tool to help ship owners improve efficiency of their operations considerably, and thus it fits perfect in our life cycle management strategy..”

 

24/7 worldwide support
Imtech Marine operates 24/7/365 Global Technical Assistance Centers in Singapore, Houston and Rotterdam to support customers, performing remote monitoring and maintenance support according to the follow the sun principle. With Infinity, satellite communication equipment onboard can be maintained through a back-up connection that enables the Global Technical Assistance Centres to help customers even more quickly through direct access.

 
Infinity allows users to share voice and data traffic required for business use combined with traffic generated by the crew in an efficient and measurable way. By doing so, users can subscribe to higher bandwidth packages and therefore enjoy lower rates  while having the ability to allocate costs and charge users (business, crew or third party) accordingly. In addition, Infinity provides a variety of value‐added services such as ‘internet café type’ access for voice and data, VoIP calling, firewalling, compression, content management, vessel positioning, email for crew or business purposes and many other services.

 
Panos Tsikopoulos, Navarino's Commercial Director, added: “We are very pleased to be able to offer Infinity in conjunction with Imtech Marine. Infinity is a very successful solution in the marketplace and we are careful only to work with quality resellers whom we are confident have both the technical expertise and commercial strength to fully support and promote  Infinity. Imtech Marine, as one of the world’s most prestigious leading maritime companies, is precisely the sort of company we enjoy working with and well placed to meet the quality standards we insist upon. Their global reach means customers around the world will be able to experience Infinity.”
