Marlink VSAT solutions for Teekay’s shuttle tanker fleet

Teekay has extended Marlink’s contract for the provision of Sealink VSAT solution across its entire shuttle tanker fleet. 

Marlink said on Monday that the increased solution capacity is already live across the shuttle tanker fleet and that Teekay has chosen the company’s solution for three new builds as well.

Teekay has had the high bandwidth global Sealink VSAT technology installed on its shuttle tanker fleet since 2011. The latest contract extension and upgrade will enable Teekay to support crew welfare and have even more connected applications on board through a significant bandwidth increase.

The company will provide ample bandwidth for crews to stay in touch with friends and family ashore as well as a faster and more flexible platform for day-to-day vessel and business operations.

The shuttle tankers will continue to benefit from already installed onboard equipment, including antennas, modems, and routers.

Deborah Sloan, Contracts Specialist at Teekay, said: “Sealink VSAT is integral to Teekay’s ability to provide efficient vessel operations in support of our global customer base.

“Sealink enables our ships to leverage connected applications that improve our operational capabilities so securing our partnership with Marlink while upgrading the bandwidth is a natural step for us.

Tore Morten Olsen, President Maritime at Marlink, added: “Teekay’s shuttle tanker fleet is one of the most advanced in the world, but for Teekay to optimize its investment in onboard technology, robust, reliable and flexible VSAT connectivity is a must.”
