Speedcast, SRH Marine to Provide Integrated Maritime Solutions
Speedcast International has announced a strategic alliance with SRH Marine. The two companies stated they hope to redefine the management of navigation and communications across the maritime industry by providing a fully integrated shipboard solution delivered by a single supplier.
The alliance will deliver a simplified solution for the operation, certification, management and maintenance of all bridge electronics on board vessels across the globe. Both companies working in tandem should reduce the administrative overhead and operational expenses for vessel management, the partners stated.
“Management of multiple vendors and suppliers can be an administrative challenge for ship owners and managers,” said John Laderos, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of SRH Marine. “By integrating traditionally disparate solutions such as Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS) and satellite communications in a secure manner, a vessel’s daily operations become more efficient. Marrying that integrated solution with a global maintenance service provides predictable expenditure and ensures that a fleet is kept on-hire and profitable.”
