De Poli extends VSAT deal

Marlink reports that it has extended its satcoms contract with Dutch shipowner De Poli Tankers, via its in-house ITC company Maritime Performances BV, to provide Sealink Plus VSAT and L-band back-up services aboard De Poli’s fleet of eight chemical tankers and two gas tankers.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}De Poli Tankers first migrated to Marlink’s VSAT service from its existing L-band communications system in 2013. The Sealink Plus system is delivered using 1-metre Ku-band antennas and the latest generation of modem technologies, alongside Marlink’s XChange IT and communications management system.

Maritime Performances has also deployed Marlink’s SkyFile Mail package on the ships, including the SkyFile ENOAD system for the electronic completion and delivery of Notice of Arrival and Departure (NOAD) forms in compliance with US Coast Guard regulations.

“By providing a stable, fast IP connection globally, Sealink has become vital to supporting operations across the De Poli Tankers fleet as we focus on delivering optimisation through digital processes,” said Ardi van der Wagt, IT specialist at Maritime Performances.

“Renewing our contract with Marlink was a natural step, as it ensures we can continue to experience a highly available VSAT service, with fully integrated, unlimited L-band back up communications all under a single fixed cost contract.”{/mprestriction}
