Speedcast International was awarded a new master service agreement and multi-year contract to deliver fully-managed communications onboard assets for Sapura Energy Berhad (Sapura Energy), a global integrated oil and gas services and solutions provider headquartered in Malaysia.

The scope of the contract is to provide secure satellite communications systems for the customer’s fleet of engineering and construction vessels supporting its operations in over 20 countries. Speedcast will provide a combination of C-band, Ku-band, fleet broadband, and 4G/Long Term Evolution (LTE) connectivity to the customer’s fleet of vessels located in remote and harsh environments.

“We have created a partnership with Sapura Energy to support their assets all around the world,” said Speedcast Executive Vice President (EVP) of Energy Keith Johnson. “This is a great opportunity to demonstrate Speedcast’s technology-agnostic approach, using multiple technologies to deliver the best communications solution for each individual asset. We design systems that are the best fit for secure and reliable communications based on factors such as geographic location, weather, bandwidth availability, and look angle; and can use multiple options for added redundancy and reliability.”
