Watum Solutions has been asked to provide four Wagenborg ships with a VSat system, so that the ships are connected to the internet at all times.
The VSat system is comprised of a 1 metre high, Sea Tel antennae (dish) and a Wi-Fi solution for the crew. The crew network is separated from the ship’s network, whereby the ship’s network always has priority.
ABS (automatic beam switching) has been implemented so that the ships are not affected by the loading cranes. The VSat automatically switches to a different satellite if one of the satellites is blocked by the mast or a loading crane.
