Infinity can be used onboard ships equipped with IP-based satellite terminals, such as Iridium Pilot, FleetBroadband or VSAT, and will be used by Imtech to support its Global VSAT network and various connectivity solutions.
Imtech Marine offices that will be offering Infinity include those in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, China, Singapore and the USA.
“Imtech Marine’s vision is to be a true lifecycle management partner for our customers and help them lower their Total Cost of Ownership,” said Eric van den Adel, managing director of Imtech Marine.
“By effectively combining our expertise in system integration and maintenance of technology on board, we support our customers during the full lifetime of a ship. Connectivity solutions are an important part of our lifecycle portfolio.”
“We are very happy to partner with Navarino, as they have proven that they can tailor the Infinity product to the operational needs of our customers. Infinity can provide the ship owner with detailed reports on usage and visualise the savings on their airtime, while providing the most economical and effective business and crew communications. It is a very effective tool to help ship owners improve efficiency of their operations considerably, and thus it fits perfect in our life cycle management strategy.”
Imtech's Global Technical Assistance Centres in Singapore, Houston and Rotterdam already perform remote monitoring and maintenance support for ships at sea. Infinity is expected to help these centres to directly access the satellite communication equipment onboard through a back-up connection.
“We are very pleased to be able to offer Infinity in conjunction with Imtech Marine,” said Panos Tsikopoulos, Navarino's commercial director.
“Infinity is a very successful solution in the marketplace and we are careful only to work with quality resellers whom we are confident have both the technical expertise and commercial strength to fully support and promote Infinity.”
“Imtech Marine, as one of the world’s most prestigious leading maritime companies, is precisely the sort of company we enjoy working with and well placed to meet the quality standards we insist upon. Their global reach means customers around the world will be able to experience Infinity.”
