      [Via Satellite 10-09-2015] RigNet’s Telecom systems Integration (TSI) business has received a multi-million dollar contract to deliver communications systems and infrastructure for a high-voltage transmission platform in an offshore wind farm. A U.K.-based offshore contractor issued the contract award for a wind farm in the German sector of the North Sea.

      RigNet TSI’s scope of work includes the integration and delivery of critical facility communications infrastructure, including Structured Cabling, Local Area Network (LAN), Wireless LAN (WLAN), telephony, Public Address/General Alarm (PAGA), Closed Circuit Television (CCTV), Access Control (ACS), meteorological systems, navigation and lifeboat radio support for the platform.

      “As modern wind farms grow in scale and move farther offshore, they begin to resemble deepwater drilling operations in terms of complexity and technology requirements,” said Mark Slaughter, CEO and president of RigNet.
