The scope of the agreement covers VICT’s OneTerminal automated platform, including the Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS), 20 Kalmar automated stacking cranes (ASCs), and 11 Kalmar AutoShuttles.

VICT aims to boost the capacity, performance and availability of the OneTerminal automated systems.

Marlink and Transpetrol have renewed their existing deal for Sealink VSAT service by signing a new contract.

The new contract covers Transpetrol’s complete vessel fleet along with two proposed buildings scheduled for completion in mid-2020.

It will allow the tanker fleet to access Marlink’s global network and business-critical VSAT solutions, which can be used for data and voice communication for its operations and support crew welfare.

The deal will also provide additional benefits to Transpetrol via an enhanced committed information rate (CIR) and maximum information rate (MIR).

“VICT aims to boost the capacity, performance and availability of the OneTerminal automated systems.”

Marlink’s network and SkyFile Anti-Virus on-board the ships will safeguard Transpetrol’s operations from cyber-attacks.

Transpetrol will also incorporate Marlink’s XChange platform and XChange Cloud.
