Via its Radio Holland subsidiary, Imtech Marine already had existing relationships with these partners, which have now been extended to include VSAT and TVRO.
All of Imtech Marine's 80 worldwide branches will be able to supply, install, commission and service the antenna systems from these manufacturers, and arrange airtime services.
In the case of Korean company Intellian Technologies, the agreement involves a series of VSAT and TVRO products, including the Intellian v110.
Jotron SatCom of Norway has signed an agreement including its Jotron’s B120 VSAT antennas, while the agreement with Thrane & Thrane covers the Sailor 900 VSAT and Sat TV antennas.
"Global VSAT gives ship owners a reliable, cost effective maritime broadband communication solution. We will take care of the complete spectrum of this innovative technology worldwide, from supply to service and maintenance," said Eric van den Adel, managing director of Imtech Marine.
"The VSAT connection is part of an integrated service and maintenance infrastructure which enables remote monitoring and maintenance. This service takes place via our 24/7 service desks in Rotterdam, Houston and Singapore."
"In line with our strategy, we are the connectivity and maintenance partner for our clients throughout the total life cycle of their ship, during construction, retrofit and throughout the operational phase by maintenance and repair. We have chosen for a selected number of suppliers with whom we are proud to have a strategic long-term partnership."
