VSAT installed for Global Seatrade newbuild

Globecomm reports that it has installed a communications package including Ku-band VSAT and Iridium Pilot on MV Baltic, the latest newbuild to join the Global Seatrade fleet.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}MV Baltic is a 3,500 dwt specialist heavy cargo/ro-ro carrier designed by Hartman Marine to carry heavy and project cargoes including windfarm and other offshore components, locomotives and yachts.

The VSAT services will be delivered using a KNS S8 antenna, with VoIP calling and live TV services on board the vessel also included in the deal.

“We congratulate Global Seatrade on the recent launch of the MV Baltic, and are delighted the project offered an opportunity to continue our close partnership,” said Malcolm McMaster, president of Globecomm’s Maritime division.

“Globecomm VSAT provides a highly reliable level of service quality and competitive pricing without compromising on quality and safety, making it attractive for operators of large and small fleets. Delivered with L-band back-up, VoIP and media services, Globecomm VSAT was able to fully meet Global Seatrade’s needs.”{/mprestriction}
