Marine satellite communications provider Intellian and Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) subsidiary Hyundai Global Service (HGS) have jointly lauched a satcoms package tailored for 'smart ships'.

This is the first outcome of the companies’ Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in July. The package integrates satellite communications with HHI’s existing smart ship solution. It combines HHI’s Integrated Smart Ship (ISS) digital ecosystem for vessel and fleet management, incorporating a powerful data analysis platform with Intellian’s satellite communications antenna systems. HGS is said to have selected Intellian as partner due to its broad range of innovative, resilient antennas, and its flexibility to operate with global service providers to provide comprehensive service.

The new package will provide HGS with a standardised smart ship package to supply for newly-built HHI ships, while Intellian will secure new customers. Moreover, as it offers internet provision right from the sea trial, customers are freed from the inconvenience of fitting network services to the vessel. HGS will provide customer support for any smart ship solution issues, guaranteeing faster response times and trustworthy service.

Kwang Heon An, CEO of Hyundai Global Service, said: “This new product launch has great implications for us as a disruptive venture which could bring about big changes to the smart ship paradigm. Through close partnership with Intellian, we will strengthen our competitiveness to offer customer value and take a step forward as a global leader in the market.”

Eric Sung, CEO of Intellian, said: “This product is the world’s first comprehensive package for smart ships, and can be realized only through the global No.1 shipbuilding group. It is the first step to leading the smart ship market. We will deliver a totally new value to market end-users through our innovative technology.”
