NOVEMBER 27, 2018 — GTMaritime has signed an agreement making Chinese broadband satellite communications leader Marinesat a value added reseller.
GTMaritime provides solutions to enable effective communications over satellite that include maritime optimized products for email, anti-virus protection and data transfer. In addition to providing IT solutions, GTMaritime also provides services that help ensure business operability 365 days a year, as well as keeping crew in touch with friends and family while at sea.
Marinesat specializes in broadband access and value-added service; it currently provides VSAT services to 1,600 vessels in China alone.
Marinesat has already begun to provide GTMaritime’s products as part of its offering with the first vessels coming on board in Japan in October 2018. The roll-out will continue into the Chinese market, across Asia and further afield.
“We are delighted to have Marinesat as our first partner in China,” says Robert Kenworthy, CEO GTMaritime. “GTMaritime has 20 plus years’ experience in delivering maritime communication solutions and Marinesat is the ideal partner for us to work with to deploy our products into China and across other regions.”
“As a leading maritime satellite communications provider in China, it is constructive for both GTMaritime and Marinesat to reach this strategic cooperation,” says Josh Suo, Vice GM of Marinesat. “Marinesat is open and welcomes cooperation with outstanding companies like GTMaritime. Together we can provide more integrated maritime solutions for ship owners worldwide, thus realising our vision of the Intelligent Ocean Service Platform.”
