SELEX Elsag, a Finmeccanica company, has supplied its OceanLINK 60 Mini Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) system to equip two vessels of the Rix Shipping Company.

OceanLINK 60 is proven to ensure reliable services even in harsh sea conditions. Its VoIP capability offers low-cost ship-to-shore and shore-to-ship voice and data communications. This allows customers, managers and crew to keep in constant touch. The system will be supported by SELEX Elsag’s network of 15 UK regional offices.
