Speedcast International has been selected by Noble Corporation to provide IT communications equipment and connectivity services to its global drilling fleet.
The global satellite communications service provider said on Friday that it would deliver end-to-end managed communication services to Noble’s fleet of vessels and rigs.
The solution includes a technology change-out of the fleet’s entire hardware infrastructure, with installations of dual-band antennas and the latest modem technologies to maximize throughput, security, and redundancy.
The end-to-end service will be supported by Speedcast’s global customer service centers, with local field engineers in each operating region to provide support.
Speedcast’s COO and EVP of energy, Keith Johnson, said: “This award is a milestone endorsement of the investment we have made to establish Speedcast as the global leader in the energy sector. We are delighted to add Noble’s global fleet to the premier energy customers that already place their trust in Speedcast.
“This award allows us to demonstrate our truly global scale for reliable service in the most remote, harsh environments where critical and high priority connectivity solutions are required.”
Speedcast operates a network using over 70 satellites with full redundancy over all major operating regions.
