Thursday, October 04, 2012

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.

The “Rix Panther” is a crew transfer vessel for the offshore wind farm industry. The “Lerrix” is a steel marine bunkering vessel which used to refuel larger ships along the Humber estuary and the east coast of the UK.

The OceanLINK 60 Mini VSAT system comprises a 3-axis stabilised, lightweight antenna. It provides an always-on, unlimited data use system, scalable to suit user’s needs, with controllable monthly airtime costs.

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.

SELEX Elsag’s solutions operate across a wide satellite footprint, offering coverage of UK, Irish and Western European offshore wind farm locations.
