Sea IT reports that it has won a new contract with Alba Tankers to install its BlueCLOUD system at two more of the company’s office locations in Poland and Sweden, to add to an existing installation at its Danish headquarters in Aalborg, as well as implementing multiple products such as such as BlueCONNECT, BlueSKY and BlueSTAR on board the vessels Atlantic and OW Baltic.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}BlueCORE is used to integrate ships’ networks with office-based IT systems, utilising the Cloud-based BlueCLOUD service which performs automatic backups on a daily basis, allowing all data stored onboard to be accessible through a direct VPN connection from the office.

“Sea IT has everything we want from a vendor - excellent products and services tailored specifically for our industry along with deep understanding of the industry’s business challenges,” said Henrik Holst Pedersen, CEO / fleet manager at Alba Tankers.

Alba Tankers operates seven vessels in its fleet, with two ships (Copenhagen and Atlantic) having been upgraded to BlueCORE version 4. Atlantic is also being equipped with BlueCONNECT, a virtualised software package to manage e-mail, file transfers, VSAT beam switching and other communications related issues.

Sea IT’s BlueSTAR can also be used to offer file transfer up to 50 Mbps by automatically switching to NMT/LTE and GSM networks on board when in range, via its software based, virtual switch board system.{/mprestriction}
