The contract cements the ongoing and substantial enhancements that Stolt Tankers has enjoyed since joining forces with Marlink to improve business and crew communications in 2011.

Stolt Tankers has signed a major new service agreement with Marlink to upgrade the bandwidth of its chemical and parcel tankers.

The package includes version 5.0 of Marlink’s XChange communications management system, which will deliver greater efficiency in IT management processes as well as reinforced cybersecurity.

Marlink’s new 4G connectivity option will also be added to Stolt Tankers’ service package, contributing more resilience and availability of service with cost-effective, low-latency and high-bandwidth services in coastal regions. A new VPN to shoreside operation centres will enable further improvements in business and operational efficiency by securely streamlining data sharing.

The agreement reflects the requirement of specialist vessel operators for flexible connectivity solutions that combine intelligent, hybrid networks with smarter data handling to enable digitalisation and support critical communications. By providing managed services, Marlink can enable data processing at the network’s edge and proactive monitoring and support to onboard systems, providing the maximum possible uptime and quality of service.

“It’s a real acknowledgement to have been selected to remain as Stolt Tankers’ global satellite service provider and to take their data communications framework into tomorrow,” said Tore Morten Olsen, president maritime, Marlink. “Stolt is an operator with the very highest standards of safety and transparency and our services will continue to provide the foundations of its business strategy for years to come.”
