DOF Group extends VSAT contract with Marlink

DOF Group has renewed its VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) services contract with Marlink for five more years, with an option to further extend the services.

Under the new contract, Marlink will provide customised VSAT services to 60 DOF owned offshore and subsea vessels, counting an additional eight vessels on the previous contract, including several imminent newbuilds.

DOF owns and operates a modern fleet of supply and subsea vessels, offering a strong engineering capacity to service the global offshore energy market. Marlink’s continuous service development, which in addition to technical enhancements includes improved global support, enables vessel owners such as DOF to provide reliable connectivity to clients.

Marlink and DOF are currently monitoring the throughput performance of the vessels using the iDirect shared platform and so far the experience is that vessels receive more throughput on a shared service. It is expected that most of fleet will move to the iDirect platform, to improve DOF’s overall bandwidth requirements.
