Castor Networks has acquired Watum Solutions effective immediately, a prominent supplier of IT networks and satellite communication for the shipping and offshore industry.

Watum Solutions is specialized in designing, installing and maintaining IT and VSAT systems on board of commercial vessels, offshore vessels and drilling platforms and is active in Europe, Africa, the Mexican Gulf, the Caribbean Sea and the Middle-East.

By integrating Watum in Castor, a one stop shop for the shipping and maritime industry is created, which allows these customers to rely on Castor for both their complete offshore and onshore IT and communication solutions. The most important benefit for customers is that IT and communication services are optimally coordinated and that they have only one point of communication, so that they do not have to spend time and energy unifying multiple suppliers to arrive at the optimal solution.

In addition, the takeover ensures that Castor becomes one of the prominent suppliers worldwide in the field of maritime communication solutions, as of now.
