2022: So far In Venture Capital

Global investment in 2022 has been majorly dominated by North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, whereas the Middle East, and South and Central America have recorded low investments comparatively. In light of this, Europe and North America have been identified as the major destinations for Private Equity and Venture Capital (PE/VC) investments.   GlobalData’s whitepaper analyzes which sectors PE/VC firms have been investing in, looking at Technology, Media, and Telecom, with these sectors recording $356 billion and a deal volume of over 10,000 deals in 2022. Healthcare, Financial Services, Business & Consumer Services, and Construction sectors have also seen high investment activity by PE/VC firms, recording a deal value of over $70 billion each.   But what can this mean for you?   Understand how the Deals Database on GlobalData Explorer can be leveraged to:

The new deal includes the entire vessel fleet of Transpetrol and two planned buildings that are scheduled to be delivered over the next 18 months.

It will enable the tanker fleet to gain access to Marlink’s global network and business-critical VSAT solutions for data and voice communication to perform its operations and support crew welfare.

As part of the deal, Transpetrol will receive additional benefits from Marlink VSAT through an enhanced committed information rate (CIR) and maximum information rate (MIR), using new digital applications and offering more access for crew.

Installation of Marlink’s network and SkyFile Anti-Virus on-board each of its ships is also expected to allow Transpetrol to further safeguard its business and operations from cyber-attack.

The company will employ Marlink’s XChange platform, a streamlined and integrated system designed for crew communications management, smooth switching between satellites, VSAT or L-band carriers, and hosting Transpetrol’s value-added services.

“Based on our experience as a customer since 2011, we’re very confident that Marlink is that partner.”

The new contract also includes XChange Cloud, a platform for transferring and synchronising files between ship and shore, and vice versa.

Transpetrol will also gain access to SkyFile Mail, Portal 360, and XChange Universal Remote Access (URA), which is designed to enable the company’s shore staff to communicate with board networks for IT maintenance and troubleshooting.

Transpetrol fleet manager Eirik Sanderlien said: “With more digital applications becoming essential to the efficiency of our business, reliable connectivity at sea is more important now than it ever was.

“It’s vital that we partner with a provider that can guarantee always available service levels regardless of where our ships are. Based on our experience as a customer since 2011, we’re very confident that Marlink is that partner.”

Transpetrol currently operates eight Medium Range, one Large Range 2, three Aframax tankers, and three very large gas carriers.
