Nordic Hamburg begins VSAT roll-out

Ship manager Nordic Hamburg has begun the roll-out of Ku-band VSAT services from KVH on board its vessels, with installation already completed on 13 out of the 25 ships to be fitted with the systems over the course of this year.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The ships are being kitted out with the satcom service provider’s latest TracPhone V7-HTS antenna equipment as part of KVH’s AgilePlans subscription-based Connectivity as a Service (CaaS) programme, offering download speeds up to 10 Mbps and upload speeds up to 3 Mbps.

“The AgilePlans programme provides the highest flexibility for our fleet and we were also attracted to KVH’s global coverage, CommBox network management solutions, fast data speed, and the great crew welfare services that are included,” said Jacobus Varossieau, operations and insurance manager for Nordic Hamburg.

“We are very pleased to have found a solution that enables us to offer our customers exceptional value and connectivity. This applies to both our operational efficiency as well as offering our valued crew fast, effective, and reliable communications.”

“In addition, KVH has provided excellent ongoing support and we now have a service that helps us future-proof our shipboard communications in line with today’s digital demands.”

The AgilePlans programme provides equipment and airtime for one monthly fee, with no commitment required. Installation at select ports and tech support are also included, as well as news, sports, and entertainment content delivered via KVH’s IP-MobileCast content delivery service.

“The innovative commercial model offered by AgilePlans along with the unique unlimited use and high-speed dual channels of the TracPhone V7-HTS give our customers a competitive edge in today’s demanding maritime industry,” said Thomas Plüschau, KVH’s regional sales manager for Germany.

“We help customise a solution to each customer’s requirements in terms of data volume, speed, complexity, and budget.”{/mprestriction}
