SC Group to roll-out Thaicom maritime broadband service

SC Group of Thailand has agreed a deal with Thaicom distributor Ship Expert Technology Company Limited for the implementation of Thaicom’s Nava maritime communications service on its fleet of approximately 30 offshore support vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Nava FTTS (Fibre-to-the-Ship) platform was launched in early 2018, offering coverage on Thaicom’s Ku- and C-band satellites across Asia Pacific and incorporating L-band services as a backup. Connectivity will be provided to SC Group alongside an integrated Nava Connect fleet management system.

“Connectivity is the key enabler of smart shipping and the digital transformation in the maritime sector,” said Surachai Nimnual, executive vice president, marine, SC Group.

“Asia’s maritime industry is adopting digital technology at a fast pace. The Thaicom Nava service and integrated fleet management solution on board our ships will help us to remain competitive and improve the efficiency of our offshore support business.”

“The integrated fleet management solution will also support crew welfare and enable crew to use online services or call their families at home by using their own mobile devices at sea.”{/mprestriction}
