Marlink will provision ITLink solutions across Teekay Offshore’s fleet of shuttle tankers, ALP towing vessels and floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) units.
Under the new agreement Marlink’s KeepUp@Sea will manage and optimise Teekay Offshore’s fleet IT infrastructure and software.
The deal makes Marlink a single supplier of diverse Information Communication Technology (ICT) services for Teekay Offshore vessels, following a satellite services contract renewal in May 2019 providing VSAT services.
“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, vice president operations, Teekay.
Tore Morten Olsen, President Maritime, Marlink, commented: “The integration of our connectivity services with the ITLink portfolio and KeepUp@Sea will simplify and enhance Teekay Offshore’s IT infrastructure, with all the material, logistical and support benefits they can expect from collaborating with a trusted single source. We are confident that remote digital intervention will have a tangible impact on Teekay Offshore’s ability to optimise and deliver more sustainable, profitable and environmentally friendly operations.”
