Intellian and Hyundai Global Service (HGS) have signed a satellite communications agreement to support vessel performance optimisation and management.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The companies will expand HGS’ ‘Integrated Smart Ship (ISS)’ solution; a digital ecosystem for vessel and fleet management, which includes a powerful data analysis platform. The solution is expected to reduce fuel costs by over 6 per cent per year.

As part of the partnership, Intellian will deliver full life-cycle support to the vessels under HGS management, spanning from monitoring and maintenance to the general services. Intellian VSAT antennas will be provided to all existing and new HHI ships as a standard package.

Both companies will begin a full-fledged sales and marketing of 'ISS' solution & satellite communications system to various maritime markets mainly merchant, energy, and more.  

“With the integration of Intellian’s satellite communications antenna technology and our differentiated ISS digital ship management system, we are well positioned to initiate a paradigm-shift in how ships are operated and the value that shipping companies can achieve from previously unobtainable efficiencies,” said Kwang Heon An, CEO of Hyundai Global Service.

Eric Sung, CEO of Intellian, added: “We’re delighted to build a strategic partnership with HGS. We are confident that our innovative technology and global service network is at the forefront of the smart ship market and our collaboration with HGS is integral to securing this leading position.”

The agreement was signed on July 15 at Centum Science Park in Busan, Korea.

Both companies have also agreed to co-develop new smart antennas with the aim to ensure on-going improvement to the ISS solution, while enabling HGS and Intellian to respond to customer needs.{/mprestriction}
