Evergreen installs latest satcoms across entire fleet

Evergreen installs latest satcoms across entire fleet

Taipei: Evergreen Line has completed installation of the Inmarsat FleetBroadband satellite communications service on its entire fleet of 70 container vessels in order to ensure optimal vessel performance and crew morale.

The system allows headquarters personnel to manage the ship's computers without visiting the vessel. It also includes database synchronization and access to the onboard voyage data recorder. In future, Evergreen has the option to use FleetBroadband for engine-performance analysis and emissions monitoring, to help reduce fuel costs and comply with emissions regulations.

"After a successful trial program last year, we discovered that FleetBroadband ensures peak performance for a wide range of business-critical applications," said Evergreen Executive Vice President Patrick Lin. "Our crewmembers also benefit from reasonably priced private email, which has helped maintain high crew spirits and productivity. The combination of service affordability and high performance convinced us to deploy FleetBroadband on our entire fleet." The installation was carried out by communications service provider Stratos over a three-month period.  [09/09/10]
