Intellian to provide satcoms for Petronas FLNG

Intellian to provide satcoms for Petronas FLNG
The high demands of sophisticated offshore installations such as the Petronas Floating Liquid Natural Gas (PFLNG) have been met by leading maritime satellite communication antenna technology provider Intellian with the triple installation at the Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering yard in South Korea.

The high profile installation is an example of the increased demand for Intellian’s 2.4m product line in the Offshore Energy and Enterprise market segments.  To ensure redundant, seamless connectivity onboard, Petronas selected Intellian for its outstanding performance, intuitive user experience and superior remote management and control capability. 

Two v240 C-band VSAT systems managed by a Dual VSAT Mediator will provide uninterrupted operation of enterprise data applications and crew welfare solutions.  Live TV entertainment will also be available via a third 2.4m system providing simultaneous reception of C- and Ku-band anywhere in the world. The t240CK features Intellian’s patented WorldView LNB and the company’s proprietary Fiber Link optical IFL solution, which delivers near zero loss between above and below deck modules for cables up to 2,000 m in length.

“It’s always especially exciting for us to be associated with ground breaking projects like this one,” said Intellian president and ceo Eric Sung. “Every system on the PFLNG Satu is the most advanced technology of its kind.  Our inclusion validates the continuing dominance of our 2.4m products in the high end maritime segments, such as Cruise and Offshore Energy,” he said.

“Market adoption of our 2.4m systems is steadily increasing for the same reasons why our 1-meter VSAT is now the most widely deployed maritime VSAT in the world.  Customers value our focus on simplifying this somewhat complex technology while delivering greater performance and a truly outstanding user experience,” Sung added.
