Nakilat’s Gas Carriers to Get VSAT Technology

Nakilat, the shipping arm of Qatar’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) sector, has entered into a contract with Global Eagle Entertainment’s Emerging Markets Communications (EMC) service line that will provide marine VSAT (Very-Small-Aperture Terminal) services for the company’s LPG and LNG vessels. 

Under the contract, EMC is supplying global KU-band VSAT connectivity and content to enable internet, data and voice services for the vessels and crew.

Recently, the installations were completed on eight Nakilat vessels, ensuring continuous connectivity.

The onboard satellite communication suite includes a voice-over-IP system for the corporate network, lowering the costs of voice calls over the satellites, according to Nakilat.

“By utilizing EMC’s VSAT technology, we are able to ensure real-time information is accessible and that our personnel can stay in touch with their families during the vessel’s voyage while at the same time, realize cost savings for the company,” Rashid Hamad Al-Marri, Nakilat Administration Director, said.
