Alphatron Marine signs first lease contract for 11 vessels

Alphatron Marine is pleased to announce that they have signed a lease contract with Seacontractors for no less than eleven vessels to provide satellite hardware and data solution packages.

Alphatron Marine’s VSAT system will be installed alongside the existing IT infrastructure on 9 of the Seacontractors B-Class workboats and 2 of the A-Class workboats, consisting of Anchor Handling Tug Supply (AHTS) and Multicats, mainly operating in Western Europe and the Middle East. The current communications system was not able to provide the amount of data required today at a competitive rate, and Alphatron Marine’s unique solution will include an 80cm VSAT system, 19-inch rack, access points, switching, routing, UPS, modem and VoIP gateway. With a lease contract that also includes spare parts and airtime, Alphatron Marine will deliver an unlimited flow of data for the same cost the vessels had with the previous limited communications. Within a period of just three months all the installations will be completed. Alphatron Marine’s extensive know how allows for setup within one or two days on each vessel, evidently meaning minimum downtime of the vessel. It will make the life of the operating crew onboard more comfortable while away, knowing they can use their smartphone in exactly the same way that they would do in port or on land.
