This platform aims to provide better vessel operation and management, as well as reduce fuel costs by more than 6% per year. With vessel lifespan varying according to how they are managed, smart ships with integrated digital platform capabilities are more attractive to ship owners who want to cut costs and environmental impact by enhancing operational efficiency.
Under the agreement, HGS will secure the satellite communications service, while Intellian will be responsible of providing satellite communication antenna systems with high resilience and RF performance enabling reliable transmission of large amounts of vessel data to shore.
Intellian VSAT antennas will be provided to all existing and new HHI ships.
Both companies have also agreed to develop new smart antennas, aspiring to ensure continuous improvement to the ISS solution.
