ITC Global to provide VSAT solutions for Maersk Drilling rigs

Danish drilling contractor Maersk Drilling has awarded a three-year VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) contract to ITC Global, a provider of satellite communications to remote and harsh environments.

The contract includes VSAT connectivity across more than half of Maersk Drilling’s global fleet of offshore drilling rigs, with voice and data services for remote personnel to stay connected with corporate offices and maintain business operations.

The turnkey VSAT solution also includes equipment, installation, and 24/7 network monitoring and support. ITC Global will deploy services to 9 offshore rigs spanning across the North Sea, West Africa, Gulf of Mexico and Southeast Asia, upgrading the systems on board to provide a faster service to Maersk Drilling’s rigs. Installations began in May, following the contract award, and will be completed during the fourth quarter of 2015.

“As the industry continues to experience some unpredictability, oil and gas customers are reviewing their partner relationships and looking for the most efficient, best overall value solutions,” said Richard Elson, Vice President Sales and Business Development, ITC Global. “While some VSAT providers are focused on consolidations and cost cuts, ITC Global has responded to the dynamics of today’s operating environment by emerging as the go-to provider, focused on reliability and technical excellence to help customers design and implement cost-efficient network solutions.”
