Greek shipmanager A.M. Nomikos has chosen KVH AgilePlans to provide VSAT connectivity for crew welfare and vessel operations.

The technical team at Nova Electronics, KVH’s service partner in Greece, has installed TracPhone V7-HTS antennas on three Nomikos vessels to date, and is expected to continue the rollout of KVH’s AgilePlans service on additional vessels within the fleet in the coming months.

KVH’s TracPhone V7-HTS, a 60 cm Ku-band satellite communications antenna will deliver data speeds as fast as 10 Mbps down/3 Mbps up for the Nomikos vessels.

The V7-HTS is available with a dual-channel configuration enabling simultaneous high-speed and unlimited-use data channels; this feature provides flexibility for crew and operations on the vessel ensuring all bandwidth needs are met. The Nomikos vessels will also use Iridium Certus as a backup companion solution with the KVH system.

“Crew welfare is very important to our company, and we expect the fast data speeds of the KVH systems and the reliable HTS network will be a great benefit to our seafarers and our shipping operations,” said Yiannis Sofianidis, IT director for A.M. Nomikos. “The installation of the equipment was smooth and easy.”

“KVH AgilePlans is a terrific choice for Nomikos because it includes everything the vessel operator needs in one monthly fee, meaning the vessels get the most advanced satcom system and network without having a CAPEX outlay,” commented Altana Foukala, sales manager for the communications division of Nova Electronics. “KVH understands the commercial maritime industry and its challenges and that’s why the KVH AgilePlans program is so successful.”
