Uniwise Offshore Limited, an offshore support vessel operator, has chosen Nava, Thaicom’s new high-speed broadband service for maritime markets, to enhance operations on its entire fleet of more than 30 vessels. 

 Uniwise Offshore will use Nava enabled-high-speed connectivity and services for operational improvements, including optimised electronic document handling and ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore communications for safer and more cost-effective operations. 

The company will also be able to improve its on-board communication services, including crew welfare and fleet management. 

The service is powered by Nava FTTS (fibre-to-the-ship), which is able to support very high data-transfer rates, providing constantly high bandwidth for operational efficiency with wide area satellite coverage across Asia Pacific. 

Nava FTTS incorporates an L-band backup solution, said Jon-Axel Hauglum, senior general manager at Uniwise Offshore.
