Marlink has signed a new three-year contract to provide CMA Ships, a subsidiary of French shipping company CMA CGM, with FleetBroadband services.
Under the terms of the agreement, Marlink will install the Thrane & Thrane SAILOR 150 FleetBroadband system onboard an unspecified number of CMA Ships' vessels, as well as provide value-added services such as its CrewEmail system and prepaid calling cards, reports Digital Ship News.
"Our new contract with CMA Ships is a prime example of our ability to provide a broad range of satellite communications solutions which can be developed to meet specific customer requirements," said Marlink CEO Tore Morten.
"In this instance we have worked with CMA Ships to put together a cost-effective and efficient FleetBroadband and airtime bundle which also incorporates a range of crew-focussed value-added services to meet CMA Ships' requirement to provide internet and e-mail services to crew."
According to Marlink, CMA Ships will use the system to provide internet data and voice for business usage, as well as operational and recreational applications for crew, the Shipping Gazette informs.
