CFL, a Dutch company which owns and operates a fleet of multi-purpose vessels, chose PRONAUTAS to implement Ku-Band VSAT connectivity solutions on all vessels in its fleet. PRONAUTAS says that the decision to commit to a fleet-wide roll out was made by CFL after a three-month trial period.
Together with air-time service operator partner Astrium Services, PRONAUTAS will provide Pharostar connectivity, an XChange Box and an iDirect modem to track, monitor and control connectivity traffic on board.
Delivery, installation, and commissioning will be carried out worldwide. The first two installations on board the newbuild vessels Industrial More and Industrial Merchant were performed at the Peters Shipyards in Kampen, the Netherlands.
PRONAUTAS will also roll out Transas ECDIS on board Jan De Nul vessels, where it will deliver and install Navi-Sailor 4000 ECDIS in Premium configuration with radar overlay.
Jan De Nul operates a fleet of dredgers and PRONAUTAS is a distributor of Transas equipment.
Work is underway to deploy ECDIS solutions alongside installations and commissioning by PRONAUTAS engineers in a number of ports.
