Nordic Tankers migrates to XpressLink

Nordic Tankers, which operates close to 130 chemical tankers, is set to migrate the first of its vessels to Inmarsat’s XpressLink service.

XpressLink is an integrated Ku-band and L-band solution with VSAT and FleetBroadband terminals.

Headquartered in Copenhagen, Nordic Tankers conducted sea trials of XpressLink on the Nordic Nelly, a 5,800dwt chemical tanker, before deciding to adopt the service, reports Inmarsat.

“The ability of XpressLink to deliver guaranteed connectivity, combined with having everything integrated into a single service at a fixed monthly cost, were fundamental drivers in our decision to migrate,” said Jørgen Liberg, general manager, IT, Nordic Tankers A/S.

“As on-board technology advances, the demand for even greater bandwidth will increase due to the ever growing amount of communication between shore and ship, and with a free migration path to Global Xpress, when this becomes available in 2014, XpressLink also future-proofs our investment.”

Frank Coles, president, Inmarsat Maritime, commented that he sees this decision by Nordic Tankers to convert to XpressLink as “a clear endorsement of the benefits of our unique, fully integrated solution.”

“With the pressures on today’s maritime business, fleet owners and operators should not have to pay twice to ensure reliability.”
