HOUSTONTransocean has renewed a multi-year contract with Harris CapRock Communications for complete managed satellite communication services.

The company will install its Harris CapRock One system on Transocean’s entire fleet as well as pending newbuilds.

The managed end-to-end communications solution includes teleport and satellite services, backhaul, dedicated bandwidth for crew internet, traffic optimization and cyber security services. The upgrade to Harris CapRock One will provide improved system performance while reducing downtime and maintenance costs.

The pricing model simplifies forecasting and planning for the fleet situated in locations such as the Gulf of Mexico, North Sea, Brazil, Asia/Pacific, West Africa, and United Arab Emirates.

Steve Fraser, IT director, Transocean, said: “Harris CapRock is providing us with a complete communications solution founded on breakthrough technology that delivers robust, always-on service anywhere in the world. They offered us the flexibility to control our costs and the ability to be more agile in responding to the market.”
