Speedcast to deliver VSAT for 17 SKOM vessels

Speedcast has signed a multi-year agreement with SK Offshore & Marine (SKOM), the chartering division of large Malaysian offshore support vessel (OSV) provider Nam Cheong, to deliver Ku-band VSAT services for 17 SKOM vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}SKOM is an existing Speedcast customer that has requested an upgrade from basic L-band service to a  higher throughput Ku-band VSAT service. According to Athina Vezyri, executive vice president of Maritime for Speedcast, the migration to broadband connectivity is a common trend seen in the market due to the services becoming essential in modern commercial shipping.

“As we continue to scale our chartering capabilities further, we look forward to furnish the majority of our vessels with a more comprehensive suite of connectivity solutions from Speedcast,” said Jonathan Leong, executive director of SKOM Group. “Based on our long-standing partnership, we are confident that Speedcast will provide state-of-the art support for fleet-wide applications, with consistent costs across our fleet.”{/mprestriction}
