[Via Satellite 12-23-2015] ITC Global, an independent unit of Panasonic Avionics that provides satellite communications to remote and harsh environments, has been awarded two multi-million dollar three year contracts to provide remote offshore connectivity to five Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessels based in Western Africa. The company is delivering service to several major European-based oil and gas companies including Saipem and Eni.
The FPSOs, operating in the Congo, Angola, and Equatorial Guinea, are each outfitted with two C-band stabilized antennas, delivering between 4 and 10 Mbps High Data Rate (HDR) service to the vessels. The custom engineered solution was designed to enable increased automation at the remote site, reducing the number of remote workers required on each FPSO at one time. ITC Global leveraged its certified field technicians based in Western Africa to ensure fast installation and commissioning of each FPSO for the customer’s African operations.
