Under the agreement, Tile Marine will offer KVH Watch connectivity to augment its maritime solutions. Tile Marine’s services cover a wide range of electrical, electronic, and mechanical work for shipowners and shipyards including installation, maintenance, and repair of communications equipment, integrated bridge systems, and other critical maritime equipment.
“With KVH Watch connectivity, we will be able to extend our services and add remote monitoring, condition-based monitoring, and assistance for a repair even if there is an incident in the middle of the ocean,” says Pravin Raghavan, managing director of Tile Marine. “Many vessels are looking for this level of service but what has been missing in our opinion was the reliable backbone of connectivity to transfer data from the ship to shore. Our ability to offer these services will be a great comfort to our customers.”
“When you combine dedicated KVH Watch IoT connectivity with Tile Marine’s extensive experience in supporting everything from bridge systems to belowdecks equipment, shipowners and managers will be able to enjoy the most comprehensive remote service experience to date, including remote troubleshooting sessions at deep sea,” said Sven Brooks, senior director of IoT business development for KVH. “Tile Marine’s entire ecosystem will benefit from this ability to do it all remotely.”
