Dutch provider Imtech Marine today announced that it has been awarded a three-year contract by Northern Lighthouse Board to provide VSAT systems with connectivity and value added services for five vessels.

The five vessels operated by Northern Lighthouse Board and Trinity House maintain safe shipping lanes around the Scottish and English sectors of the British Isles coastline.

In the port of Southampton, the Trinity House vessel Patricia was the first of the five to have the connectivity solution of Imtech Marine installed.

The connectivity is meant for both vessel operations and crew welfare. One of the value added services provided by Imtech separates business and crew usage.

The Rotterdam-based supplier will also provide remote VSAT monitoring support on all five vessels. The on-board networks can be remotely accessed and supported by the customer’s IT department via the VSAT system. Next to this, the vessels will have a first line of fault reporting via Imtech’s Global Technical Assistance Centres (GTAC), which monitor the vessels’ systems remotely around the clock, enabling early detection of problems and the remote correction of system faults.
