UPGRADED CONNECTIVITY FROM MARLINK FOR STOLT FLEET

Wednesday, July 8, 2020 

Connectivity and IT solutions provider Marlink has signed a new service agreement with Stolt Tankers, continuing the service enhancements that Marlink has delivered to Stolt since 2011.

Under the new agreement Marlink will provide Stolt Tankers’ fleet of 83 chemical and parcel tankers with a bandwidth upgrade, enabling greater digitalisation of its operations focusing on quality, safety, security and client satisfaction. The package includes version 5.0 of Marlink’s XChange communications management system, which will deliver greater efficiency in IT management processes as well as reinforced cyber security.

Marlink’s new 4G connectivity option will be added to Stolt Tankers’ service package, contributing even more resilience and availability of service with cost-effective, low-latency and high-bandwidth services in coastal regions. A new VPN to shoreside operation centers will enable further improvements in business and operational efficiency by securely streamlining data sharing.

The agreement reflects the requirement of specialist vessel operators for flexible connectivity solutions that combine intelligent, hybrid networks with smarter data handling to enable digitalisation and support critical communications. By providing managed services, Marlink says it can enable data processing at the network’s edge and proactive monitoring and support to onboard systems, providing the maximum possible uptime and quality of service.

Tore Morten Olsen, President Maritime, Marlink, said: “It’s a real acknowledgement to have been selected to remain as Stolt Tankers’ global satellite service provider and to take their data communications framework into tomorrow. Stolt is an operator with the very highest standards of safety and transparency and our services will continue to provide the foundations of its business strategy for years to come.”
