The solution will be delivered by a single provider, reducing the administrative overhead and operational expenses for vessel management.

“The alliance between Speedcast and SRH Marine is a giant leap forward in addressing the fragmented nature of vessel technical management”, said Tim Bailey, Executive Vice President, Products, Marketing and Business Development, Speedcast.

According to Mr. Bailey, Speedcast will provide a ‘one-stop shop’ for e-navigation, bridge electronics, communications and maintenance, allowing ship owners and managers to leverage the global power of the alliance.

“Management of multiple vendors and suppliers can be an administrative challenge for ship owners and managers,” said John Laderos, CEO of SRH Marine. “By integrating traditionally disparate solutions such as ECDIS and satellite communications in a secure manner, a vessel’s daily operations become more efficient. Marrying that integrated solution with a global maintenance service provides predictable expenditure and ensures that a fleet is kept on-hire and profitable”.
