Intelsat-Telespazio to provide service to Saipem

MUMBAI: Intelsat and Telespazio will be providing Worldwide communications services to oil and gas industry contractor Saipem.

The global communications provider has been chosen by Telespazio to provide oil and gas industry contractor, an ENI company, Saipem with voice and data services to support its worldwide onshore and offshore construction, drilling and deep water operations.

Intelsat's global solution, utilizing the IS-701, IS-905 and IS-904 satellites, will allow 16 oil and gas vessels traversing the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans to transmit voice and data traffic to Saipem's land-based operations center located in Europe, says an official release.

Each of the 16 vessels will be equipped with a 2.4 meter C-band maritime antenna to communicate with Intelsat's satellite system. This network is integrated into Saipem's global terrestrial network, which is managed by Albacom, a telecom provider.

According to Telespazio network and multimedia business unit manager Paolo Binelli, "Intelsat's robust network is well suited to carry this solution as it offers Saipem the flexibility and reliability it needs to communicate efficiently to and from almost any ocean region on a global scale. In the oil and gas industry, it is important to have a trustworthy and secure network, such as Intelsat's, in place to transmit data between ocean-based vessels and processing centers in order to maintain the accuracy and integrity of the information."

"Intelsat's diverse network and four decades of experience as a satellite services leader, combined with Telespazio's service provision strength, create a winning combination that allows us to pass along a valuable knowledge base to customers on land or at sea," Intelsat ltd, COO, Ramu Potarazu was quoted in the release, saying so.

"Our strength and know-how in the provision of services to important vertical markets, such as oil and gas, gives our customers the peace of mind that information critical to the success of their businesses is being transmitted in a steadfast, reliable manner," he added.
