ITC Global upgrades communications on Maersk rigs

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UK – Maersk Drilling has awarded satellite communications specialist ITC Global a three-year contract.

This covers provision of VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) connectivity across more than half Maersk’s fleet of offshore drilling rigs, with voice and data services for remote personnel to stay connected with corporate offices and maintain business operations.

The scope includes equipment, installation, and wound-the-clock network monitoring and support.

ITC is providing services to nine rigs working in the North Sea, West Africa, Gulf of Mexico and Southeast Asia, upgrading systems on board. Installations began in May and will be completed during the current quarter.

Last month, ITC was acquired by Panasonic Corp. of North America and now operates as an independent unit of Panasonic Avionics Corp.
