Secures Multiple Professional Services Contracts with Oil and Gas Operators
"Our ability to match the correct personnel to the job, as well as the depth of expertise and flexibility we provide our customers, is key to our professional services model," said Keith Johnson, EVP Energy, Speedcast. "Embedding a Speedcast employee on-site at a customer location further strengthens our relationship and enables our clients to focus on their core business rather than their telecommunications networks. Professional services is an area where we are adding resources because of the increasing interest from our customers for a partner that can provide a full range of products and services, not just connectivity."
In the North Sea, Speedcast will provide engineering and systems integration support through the testing and commissioning of various equipment including public address and general alarm (PA/GA) systems, closed-circuit television (CCTV), ultra high frequency (UHF) and very high frequency(VHF) radios, Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS), and radar and aeronautical navigation beacons during the final part of a shipyard fit-out phase before providing ongoing support during the critical period from sail-away to first oil. The team will then execute a full handover to the operator to complete the contract.
Additionally, Speedcast has expanded its professional services role with two major operators in the North Sea to complement and provide network support to the specialist teams who it already supports through radio operator, telecom technician and project/service delivery positions.
Finally, Speedcast will provide engineering resources to another large oil and gas operator to help commission the telecommunication services on a new platform in Malaysia.
