SAM expands VSAT capabilities

SAM Electronics Nederland has announced that it has signed a series of agreements with multiple airtime partners to meet increased demand for its VSAT capability.

The Rotterdam-based company says it is targeting offshore and dredging markets and that, to date, it has sold and installed over 250 KVH TV and VSAT systems on behalf of Belgian- and Dutch-based customers such as DEME, Van Oord, Vroon and Wagenborg.

SAM Electronics Nederland says that the agreements it has signed with its unnamed airtime partners enable it to provide users with customised solutions covering virtually any type of VSAT assembly with any type of airtime subscription.

“Having successfully installed sophisticated IP-networked VSAT equipment for Allseas aboard Pieter Schelte, the world’s largest construction vessel, our increased capability and flexible solutions will be of particular interest to offshore and dredging markets requiring the latest equipment and standards of performance,” says SAM Electronics Nederland president Jelmer Domela.

“Performance standards continue to be especially crucial for crew welfare and our latest solutions will enable us to provide cost-effective, all-inclusive TV, radio, video and messaging services during all stages of a voyage or operation aboard vessels of any type or size.”

SAM Electronics Nederland is a subsidiary of Hamburg-based SAM Electronics, an L-3 company.
