(businesspress24) - Amsterdam, 4 May 2017 — Castor Marine, the Netherlands based maritime communications and IT services provider, announces today that it has been awarded a multi-year contract with Wagenborg Shipping. The contract covers the delivery of 40+ new VSAT systems with satellite Internet based on Castor’s global VSAT network, Inmarsat Fleetbroadband as back-up for the VSAT service and IT support for the vessel LAN infrastructure. Castor Marine will provide an end-to-end solution including installation and onboard support worldwide.

This setup enables Wagenborg Shipping to enhance crew welfare and ship to shore connectivity using Castor’s global Ku-band footprint.

Theo Klimp, Fleet Director at Wagenborg Shipping, said: “Increasing business and crew demand for fast and reliable internet requires an integrated IT and communication solution from a proven satellite service provider. Castor Marine is not only a satellite network operator with its own teleport facilities, but also understands and supports our IT infrastructure onboard. They are able to provide a full end-to-end solution including hardware lease, VSAT bandwidth, Inmarsat Fleetbroadband airtime and installation and support. We found in Castor Marine a partner that has, and can further develop, services to support our IT requirements over time. Castor Marine has installed VSAT systems on 9 vessels already, and our crew members are very satisfied.”

Ivo Veldkamp, CEO of Castor Marine, concluded: “We are honored that Wagenborg Shipping places their trust in us. This deal also underlines our unique selling points for the maritime market: Castor Marine not only offers highly reliable maritime Ku-band services as a network operator, but also designs and support the IT infrastructure to meet the needs of business and crew welfare applications of the most demanding customers, such as Wagenborg Shipping.”
