Imtech Marine reports that it has been selected by Marine Atlantic to deliver a VSAT ship to shore communications platform for the Canadian ferry company.

The VSAT system was installed by Imtech’s navigation and communication brand, Radio Holland. Imtech says it will be used to facilitate point of sale transactions on board, as well as providing communications over Marine Atlantic’s private VSAT network.

Colin Tibbo, CIO of Marine Atlantic said: “When we began the RFP process, one of our key objectives was to not only find a service provider but a business partner; a company we felt could support our existing vessel communication needs, also providing strategic advice and input as we continue to modernise many of our business processes across the fleet.”

“Our service needs will continue to evolve as we work to strengthen onboard services to both customers and crew and we will continue to look to Imtech/Radio Holland for their expertise to ensure we have the systems in place to support our business.”

Marine Atlantic is owned by the Canadian government and operates four ferries between Newfoundland, Labrador and Nova Scotia. It has worked with Radio Holland and Imtech Marine since 2011.
