Thome, an international shipping service supplier that manages a diverse fleet in excess of 180 vessels, will be provided with a combination of SAILOR 250 FleetBroadband and SAILOR 500 FleetBroadband antennas, bundled with airtime packages.
AND Group's contract with Thome was announced at the end of February 2012 and includes a combination of pricing packages, including Inmarsat's Very Large Allowance (VLA) offering.
“This project involves a large number of vessels from different ship owners, so we need to be sure that the system we have chosen is easy to install and offers a good balance between cost and performance,” said Ryan Dalgado, procurement & supply chain manager, Thome Ship Management.
“SAILOR FleetBroadband clearly offers this so we are more than happy to put these incredibly reliable terminals on vessels under our management.”
Both the SAILOR 250 and SAILOR 500 feature the new Inmarsat Multi-voice service, allowing up to nine simultaneous voice lines on the system without the need to add an external IPPBX.
“Thome is a leading shipping services supplier, representing a large number of high quality vessels and ship owners, so we are delighted that they have chosen SAILOR FleetBroadband to ensure reliable, global connectivity and voice calling,” said Casper Jensen, VP maritime business unit, Thrane & Thrane.
