Teekay Offshore has selected Marlink’s ITLink solutions portfolio with its IT operational platform, KeepUp@Sea, to streamline and improve fleet IT management.

This positions Marlink as a single supplier of Information Communication Technology (ICT) services for Teekay Offshore vessels, following a satellite services contract renewal in May 2019.

Marlink will provision ITLink solutions across Teekay Offshore’s fleet of shuttle tankers, ALP towing vessels and FPSO units to ensure more availability of operational tools, resulting in more efficient and sustainable fleet operations.

Under the deal, Marlink’s ITLink solutions with KeepUp@Sea will manage and optimise Teekay Offshore’s fleet IT infrastructure and software. Standardisation, automation and remote network management will generate substantial savings in time and resources while reducing the possibility of human error and the requirement for technicians to travel to a ship to fix IT issues. This helps to reduce Teekay Offshore’s environmental footprint, while maintaining the compliance and resilience of vessel IT networks with automated software updates and remote access for troubleshooting. ITLink solutions are key to a cyber-secure and well-ordered IT network, with the advent of the IMO 2021 Cyber Security guidelines.

“As our operations become ever more sophisticated, encompassing the shore-based remote monitoring of onboard systems, it’s obviously vital for us to know that the digital foundation between vessels and from shore to ship can be relied upon without question,” said Regis Rougier, VP Operations, Teekay. “We’re delighted to have Marlink as an attentive and convenient single interface between our all-important IT and communications structures.”

“We’re very pleased to be strengthening our close relationship with Teekay Offshore and keeping the company at the cutting-edge of maritime digitalisation,” said Tore Morten Olsen, President Maritime, Marlink.
