Greece - Vizada, SRH Marine Electronics to Equip Danaos Shipping Fleet

Vizada, the leading provider of global satellite-based mobility services recently acquired by Astrium, and Vizada Elite Partner SRH Marine Electronics S.A. have signed a 24-month agreement with Danaos Shipping Co. Ltd to equip the company’s fleet of vessels with a full broadband communications system.

The partners will provide 1 GB connectivity over Inmarsat FleetBroadband terminals, connectivity will be further enhanced by Vizada XChange and the Vizada Crew PC for optimal internet usage.

Danaos Shipping Co. Ltd is a Greece based ship manager which provides ship management services to one of the world’s largest fleets of containerships, while supervising many technically demanding and geographically diverse shipbuilding projects. Thanks to the recently signed deal with SRH Marine Electronics S.A. and Vizada, their fleet of 63 vessels will benefit from high speed internet and telephone connectivity via FleetBroadband for their business and crew communications needs.

SRH will provide the Thrane & Thrane Sailor FleetBroadband terminals. Vizada will enhance the satellite connectivity while providing the all-in-one maritime communications platform Vizada XChange. Vizada XChange, through the onboard box hardware in conjunction with the user interfaces, will allow Danaos IT managers or captains to choose settings and configurations to make the best use of the FleetBroadband connectivity, including web compression and filtering and optimized connectivity switching features.

“In this difficult period, having a reliable cost effective solution onboard is vital for our business. As the IT Manager of Danaos, I know that reliable ship-shore connectivity is key! Through Vizada XChange, I can control and monitor the on board IT infrastructure remotely. If this can be combined with Crew Welfare solutions, such as Crew PC, you can increase your business. And with Vizada XChange you can.” states Vassilis Fotinias, IT Manager, Danaos.

Vizada will also equip the vessels with Crew PC, the slim, plug-and-play computer solution that is completely preconfigured to match the communication needs of Danaos’ crew. Crew can enjoy web browsing, surfing, and chatting with friends and loved ones during their downtime aboard.

“SRH Marine Electronics S.A. and Vizada have worked together for more than 10 years and we’re happy to provide a full communications system to Danaos. Vizada clearly adds value to our strong communications offering, especially in terms of solutions for crew welfare” states Athina Vezyri, Chairman & CEO of SRH Marine Electronics S.A.
