Castor Networks completes Watum Solutions acquisition

Castor Networks, a provider of satellite communications services to the maritime, oil and gas and energy sectors, reports that it has acquired Watum Solutions, an IT and satcoms provider to the shipping and offshore industry, effective immediately.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}In particular, Watum Solutions specialises in designing, installing and maintaining IT and VSAT systems and is active in Europe, Africa, the Mexican Gulf, the Caribbean Sea and the Middle East.

Watum operations will be integrated into Netherlands-headquartered Castor, which operates its own teleport in Burum, to create a single IT and communication services provider with only one point of contact.

“Castor is hard at work to become a prominent supplier of worldwide maritime IT and communication solutions,” said Castor CEO, Ivo Veldkamp.

“We already offered worldwide Ku-band VSAT, L-band and 3G/4G coverage for maritime customers and now we can also offer them integrated IT services and support.”{/mprestriction}
