Saga Shipholding of Norway has signed a contract with Dualog to implement the communications services provider’s Crew Surf system.

Saga, the open-hatch carrier subsidiary of Japanese company Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK), specialises in the transportation of forest products and breakbulk cargoes, and will use the Crew Surf system to provide optimised internet access to its crews.

Crew members can monitor their own data usage via the application, and can buy additional internet time on a ‘self-service’ basis.

“We are pleased to sign this contract with Dualog,” said Nils Otto Berntsen Bjørhovde, technical manager at Saga Shipholding (Norway) AS.

“Saga is committed to our crew and we asked them for the top reasons to stay with Saga. On the top (of the) list came good internet services on board. With Crew Surf from Dualog, we are confident of offering good and controlled internet to the crew.”

The inclusion of the Saga Shipholding fleet will bring the total number of vessels running Dualog services up to 2,200.
