Ashtead secures communications deal with nCentric

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UK Ashtead Technology has secured a worldwide agreement with nCentric to provide broadband communications between rigs and vessels and onshore facilities.

The deal will see Ashtead Technology supply video streaming and data transmissions for large-scale, wireless dynamic mesh networks from its offices across the globe.

The nCentric technology can be used to monitor offshore operations, increase communication, and can relay high-definition footage from ROVs in real-time. The system can be configured remotely and can be monitored from an onshore location, reducing the number of people required offshore and limiting downtime.
