Luxembourg-based satellite operator SES has partnered with GTMaritime to offer a new volume-based service package for improved regional maritime connectivity.

The proposed service has been named Maritime+ Regional Connectivity and is set to be looked after by a newly created entity known as SES Networks. It will be befitted from SES’s satellite fleet and ground infrastructure.

GTMaritime intend to market the service as GTLitespeedMAX under its airtime portfolio.

The new service will provide a set-price, fixed-volume, regional VSAT solution to customers operating offshore supply and fishing vessels, ferries and RoRo ships, barges, cargo carriers, leisure craft, dredgers and yacht management companies.

Maritime+ Regional Connectivity will be available across European waters and in the Middle East once operational.

GTMaritime CEO Robert Kenworthy said: “GTLitespeedMAX, with speeds up to 4MB/s in download and unlimited data usage during the night, will allow our customers to benefit from a volume-based fixed monthly rate package with full control over consumption and costs.

SES Techcom Services managing director Gerhard Bethscheider said: “By utilising our services, GTMaritime has brought seamless connectivity to more than 600 ships over the past years.

“We are continuously enhancing our offering and capabilities to provide tailored solutions coupled with unparalleled satellite coverage, and are happy to enable GTMaritime to deliver this easily customisable connectivity offering for the growing maritime market in Europe and the Middle East.”

SES introduced its new SES Maritime+ service in September last year in a bid to provide high-speed connectivity to ocean-going vessels worldwide.
