Transocean’s rig fleet to get comms system upgrade

Harris CapRock Communications, a provider of communications solutions, will install its Harris CapRock One system on Transocean’s entire fleet as part of a multi-year contract renewal for complete managed communications services.

The contract provides satellite communications services and includes communications service on all current vessels, as well as pending newbuilds.

“Harris CapRock is providing us with a complete communications solution founded on breakthrough
technology that delivers robust, always-on service anywhere in the world,” said Steve Fraser, IT director, Transocean.

The managed end-to-end communications solution includes teleport and satellite services, backhaul,
dedicated bandwidth for crew internet, traffic optimization and cyber security services.

According to Harris CapRock Communications, the new solution will more than double available bandwidth for the Transocean fleet, while providing a single worldwide bandwidth price. The company also added that the pricing model simplifies forecasting and planning for the fleet situated in locations such as the Gulf of Mexico, the North Sea, Brazil, Asia Pacific, Africa’s West Coast and United Arab Emirates.

“We are delighted with Transocean’s decision to upgrade to the Harris CapRock One solution as part of their contract renewal,” said Tracey Haslam, president, Harris CapRock.
