Singapore-based Byzantine Maritime Gas has agreed a deal with KVH for the provision of VSAT systems for its new fleet of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) carriers.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Byzantine is deploying KVH’s TracPhone V11-IP equipment, a dual-mode C/Ku-band antenna system delivering data speeds up to 4 Mbps downlink and 1 Mbps uplink on the KVH miniVSAT Broadband service.

The company will also have access to communications management services via the CommBox Network Manager, which is built into the below decks unit and provides least cost routing and connection-specific firewall rules, as well as web caching and compression.

“We chose KVH for its global coverage and fast data speeds, which are essential for our modern fleet to be able to operate as efficiently as possible,” said Capt Belal Ahmed, director of Byzantine Maritime Gas.

“We also find it very important to have a tool such as the myKVH portal, which provides valuable vessel positioning, data control, and fleet management for us.”

The myKVH web portal includes tools to configure the onboard network, monitor vessel positioning, obtain vessel data usage status, and allocate data usage to individual users or tasks onboard.

“We are thrilled that Byzantine Maritime Gas has chosen KVH’s leading mini-VSAT Broadband service for its connectivity needs,” says Vivian Quenet, KVH vice president of sales for the Asia-Pacific region.

“Byzantine sets a high standard with its advanced fleet and its dedication to safe and efficient operations, and we are happy to contribute to their success by providing an entire suite of hardware, connectivity, and services.”{/mprestriction}
